Shabbat Tzedek: Tye Gregory, Executive Director, A Wider Bridge
Friday, March 29 - Sunday, March 31
A Wider Bridge is a North American organization working through education, advocacy, relationship-building and grant-making to create equality in Israel by expanding LGBTQ inclusion in Israel, and equality for Israel by cultivating constructive engagement with Israel.
Tyler (Tye) Gregory envisions a progressive movement in the U.S. that sees no contradiction between a love for Israel and a commitment to social justice and equality. Tye serves as the Executive Director of A Wider Bridge, the LGBTQ organization advancing equality in Israel, and equality for Israel. In his capacity at AWB, Tye partners with his talented team and dedicated board to advance our LGBTQ Israel movement. Previously, Tye served for three years as the Deputy Director of A Wider Bridge, managing the fundraising and programming portfolios of the organization. Before AWB, Tye spent several years working for AIPAC (the American Israel Public Affairs Committee), America’s pro-Israel lobby. Tye is a native of San Diego, California, and a graduate of the University of California, Davis. He recently moved to Manhattan, New York, where he is discovering that much of the world lives through not one, but four seasons.
Beth Israel is honored to host Tye for a number of presentations.
