The best way to stay connected to international organizations is online. Our new website, created by a volunteer, works to highlight current member information. Among our new features is the map of our members: an interactive map powered by google that allows you to click and drag around the world. Members will have the opportunity to feature their events on our website as well as update their organization’s page. Léa, one of our volunteer, also conducts interviews with organizations around the world to highlight their unique triumphs and struggles. With constant contact with our member organizations, we look forward to co-sponsoring events with our members. Last year, we teamed up with the Jerusalem Open House for An Evening of Art in Los Angeles. Proceeds went to the Shira Banki Educational Fund and to the World Congress. Check back soon to learn about our future events in Buenos Aires and Paris!
We have always had a positive impression derived from the fact that other organizations of the world shared their expertise and gave us encouragement for the achievement of our main goal which was, and still is the struggle to have LGBTIQ people recognized as part of the Jewish world. We have always considered the WC as an institution that helped the LGBTIQ Jews of the World to achieve common goals such as equal rights and inclusion within the communities they belong to.
