A Wider Bridge, an organization that works to promote LGBTQ equality in Israel, as well as the equality of Israel in LGBTQ communities, announced its new Jewish pride flag in June.
This flag replaces A Wider Bridge’s previous pride flag, which featured a rainbow pride flag with a white Star of David. The new flag has been updated to incorporate more inclusive colors.
“The original pride flag, the inclusive colors, and the star each stand for inseparable parts of our identities,” said A Wider Bridge Executive Director Ethan Felson and Chairman of the Board Alan Schwartz, in a statement. “We cannot allow one to be removed just as we won’t be excluded from either the LGBTQ community or the Jewish community.”
