An invitation to meet with parents
For youth: Members of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community who are hesitating about their sexual attraction and/or gender identity, and who are afraid to tell their parents, or who need help in dealing with the parent’s responses.
For older LGBTs: Students and others who wish to chat about their relationship with their parents; a relationship influenced by their [own] sexual identity.
For LGBT adults: Adults in need of a warm, non-judgmental and receptive conversation to help them in this still-homophobic society.
For parents of a LGBT child: Parents who are struggling to accept their child’s coming out, and who could benefit from a helpful heart-to-heart talk with other TEHILA parents.
All are welcome to come for a one-on-one meeting with a TEHILA parent who has already gone down the path of understanding and accepting their LGBT child(ren).
TEHILA parents are aware:
We call this activity “Parents’ Coffee Shop” which was created after the murder at the LGBT youth meeting several years ago. It provides a framework for youth and adults who need a sympathetic, non-judgemental hearing. The meeting with these volunteer parents enables the LGBT person to raise all and any issues and hesitations in a casual setting, and also to take an intimate look into the parents’ side of things.
TEHILA parents operate “Parents’ Coffee Shop” in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and other cities The parents are ready to meet anyone who needs and wants to chat.
We believe that meetings with a TEHILA parent at “Parents’ Coffee Shop” can help you ask new (and old) questions, and to find the right way – that suits you – to become stronger, more stable and to feel better about yourself and your parents.
We’ll be pleased to meet you!
