Our Mission

The Jerusalem Open House for Pride and Tolerance (JOH) is a non-profit organization founded in 1997, with a community center serving people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. While reaching out with our message of equality and acceptance to all people in Jerusalem, Israel, and abroad, our main focuses are community building, providing humanitarian services and promoting social change. We work to create a safe, pluralistic and egalitarian Jerusalem that is welcoming to all of its inhabitants, communities, and visitors.
