On January 10th, 2016 in Hollywood Hills, CA, the World Congress of GLBT Jews presented An Evening of Art to benefit the World Congress and the Jerusalem Open House. An opportunity to see work being done around the world, videos were shown from Christophe Girard, the Mayor of the 4th arrondissement in Paris, and the Jerusalem Open House. Please enjoy these pictures below from the event. We extend our thanks to all the attendees and everyone involved in making this night happen!

The Jerusalem Open House for Pride and Tolerance (JOH) is a leading organization of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people and their allies in the heart of Jerusalem. As a grassroots, activist community center, we provide direct services to all LGBTQ individuals in Jerusalem and its surrounding communities, while working to secure LGBTQ rights in Israeli society at large. With a constituency as diverse as the city itself, the JOH transcends political, ethnic and religious boundaries to build and unite a community in pursuit of the common goal of tolerance and mutual support.
