Federation's JCRC Hosts Israeli LGBT Leadership

JCRC hosts dinner with Israeli LGBT organization President Shai Doitsch at home of San Diego School Board VP Kevin Beiser

Shai Doitsch is the Chairperson Aguda, Israeli's national LGBT organization.  He works as an expert adviser on gay tourism and gay market outreach, and is the publisher of the Israeli's Gay Magazine.  We met him while in Israel this past July for the seminar with elected officials and Jewish community leaders.

Shai  visited San Diego for the purpose of becoming familiar with the local community, both Jewish and LGBT, and met with local leaders in the LGBT and Jewish communities to explore collaborations. 

Federation's JCRC hosted a dinner at the home of Kevin Beiser, San Diego School Board Vice-President to introduce Shai to the San Diego community.  We enjoyed lively conversation about the challenges of marriage, surrogacy, religion and connections between our two countries.
