Liberal Judaism’s Surat-Shaan to take part in landmark event

Liberal Judaism's Surat-Shaan Knan has been selected to participate in the landmark Eighteen:22 event – bringing together Jewish LGBTQ and ally leaders and innovators from around the world.

Taking place in Salzburg, Austria, from August 11-13, Rainbow Jews and Twilight People project manager Surat-Shaan will be one of 60 hand-picked participants.

The Eighteen 22 organisers said: “The selection process was extremely competitive, with applications coming in from all continents, across a wide range of fields. Surat-Shaan’s application stood out to our team of international readers thanks to its enthusiasm, passion and personal journey.”

The first global Eighteen:22 gathering seeks to bring together the next generation of leaders working to transform the world for LGBTQ Jews and the communities around them, recognising the far-reaching benefits of networking, collaborating and pooling talents to drive impact and positive change.

Surat-Shaan said: “I am so excited to have been selected and proud to bring Liberal Judaism’s ground-breaking LGBTQ initiatives to the global stage.”
