Beyond the Bridge is A Wider Bridge’s leadership network of North American and Israeli LGBTQ (and allied) change makers, committed to advancing equality in Israel, equality for Israel and justice for everyone through community education, engagement and public advocacy.
Our mission alums return home as storytellers, advocates, and supporters with a personal stake in the future of A Wider Bridge, LGBTQ communities, Israel, and its people.
Our alums are acquainted with the leadership of Israel’s most significant LGBTQ organizations, each at the forefront of change in Israeli society. We meet leading Israeli LGBTQ figures from all walks of life – religious and secular – in politics, activism, culture, music, film, and much more.
Participants also meet organizations and people building the future of modern Israel – those fueling the country’s growth as a diverse and urban high-tech and research powerhouse, as well as those working to address the country’s many domestic and foreign challenges and contradictions.
