Rainbow Jews founder Surat-Shaan Knan will represent the UK at a landmark LGBTQ conference to be held in Tel Aviv.
Knan has been invited to a talk on Jewish LGBTQ issues at a roundtable at the ’40 Years of Pride’ conference – where he will be the only UK presenter.
Coinciding with Tel Aviv Pride, the conference has been organised by Israel’s LGBT task force, The Aguda, and North America’s pro-Israel LGBT group, A Wider Bridge.
Knan, the Ritual Reconstructed project community coordinator, who also runs Liberal Judaism’s Twilight People, was nominated as a new Jewish LGBT pioneer by Haaretz at last year’s Tel Aviv Pride.
Surat said: “I feel honoured to have been invited by A Wider Bridge to participate and share my views”.
