Rob Schoenberger from Los Angeles took part in A Wider Bridge’s LGBTQ Mission to Israel and share their magic moments from the trip in this newly-released video.
“I have a brand new respect for this country, its people and culture,” Rob says. “I learned a lot over the past nine days and I will continue to learn a lot about Israel when I get back home. I’m looking forward to share what I’ve learned with other members of my temple, BCC, telling our stories and feelings and emotions about the trip.”
“I would definitely recommend to anybody who’s thinking about coming to Israel and never been here before, take A Wider Bridge tour, you will get more than you ever thought you would get out of a vacation,” Rob says. “It’s a mission to learn.”

Participants on a wider bridge’s 2014 Israel Mission shared their magic moments from the trip. A Wider Bridge’s unique trip brings together an incredible and diverse group of leaders – lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer (LGBTQ) people and allies, Jews and non-Jews.
Through shared experience, participants engage with modern Israeli and LGBTQ life, and learn about both the recent and ancient history of the people, the land and the state of Israel.
A Wider Bridge is proud to be collaborating with JFNA on developing the LGBTQ portions of the itinerary for the May 2016 Israel Mission trip.
