Two Israeli LGBT Organizations Received A Human Rights Award

Written by

Two associations of psychological support for Jewish orthodoxe gays and lesbians received each one the Human Rights Award by France.

There were 57 files submitted which could receive this price and it is finally Havruta, association which assists Jewish orthodoxe gays psychologically, and the association Bat Kol, which supports Jewish orthodoxe lesbians, who were awarded.

"I did not think that France saw positively the situation of human rights in Israel," said Daniel Jonas, director of Havruta. "But I did not think either that our movement would be one day seen well near the orthodoxe ones. And yet this month a rabbi called me asking that I help a young man rejected by his family because he is gay. That proves that all can happen."

"Thanks to this price and with this call, I realized that we became a reference for all the religious gay of this country, a glimmer of hope, a hearth," he added.
