Shavuah Tov to all, including RABBIS,
THEY are actively organizing for their DEATH EVENT. Are WE organizing for our LIFE event, or are we going to let them bring us DEATH TO JERUSALEM AND ISRAEL?
Is PRAYER the only tool we have, really? Or is this simply laziness, fear, lack of imagination and weariness?
PS: I am NOT knocking prayer, but there is a time and place for everything. Prayer is very nice, AND WHAT ABOUT ACTION? Zero? Gur nicht? Nada? Niente? Shum klum??
1. The PROPAGANDA:
About Jerusalem Open House
When the JOH was founded in 1997, few even knew there were LGBTQ people in Jerusalem; almost no one believed we could create and sustain a vibrant communal institution. Eight years later, as the rainbow flag dances over our downtown headquarters on HaSoreg Street, and we are building on a remarkable record of achievement.

Gathering to make signs for the Pride Parade at the Jerusalem Open House (2 Soreg st.), everyone is invited!
LGBT issues are continuously present in Jerusalem. Every day gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transsexuals, and queers take part in the same daily activities as everyone else. We walk in the streets, meet with friends, and make art. Leading toward the pride parade, we intend to show the art, in a variety of media, of the LGBT community and let the life and artistic achievements of the community rise above the surface.
In addition to the Pride Parade, during the pride month in Jerusalem there will be another event which will express the everyday life of the gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transsexuals, and queers who are living in Jerusalem. This "parade" will be in different public spaces on specific dates.
The opening of Stairway exhibit will be a presentation of painting, video, and photography.
