Jerusalem Pride Parade

Today will mark the 18th Jerusalem March for Pride and Tolerance. Themed “One Community, Many Faces,” the march will celebrate the diversity of the LGBTQ+ community, as well as demand that decision-makers – Israel’s Knesset, Supreme Court and local governments – provide equal rights to the community.
