This afternoon, thousands of Ultra-Orthodox Jews will be gathering at the Israeli Consulate in protest of tomorrow’s Jerusalem Pride March. Please join our community at 3:00pm at the consulate for a peaceful demonstration of tolerance in support of the LGBT community of Jerusalem in the midst of this violence and hate. We are not gathering to provoke the Chassidim but rather to provide an alternative voice of peace and tolerance. This will be a dignified, quiet, and prayerful gathering. We plan to meet on the west side of 2nd Ave between 42nd and 43rd Streets, but if we are forced to move, look for the CBST banner and the rainbow flags.

Contributions are still being accepted to the Jerusalem Open House Emergency Fund at www.cbst.org.

Together we will model peace and show the world the presence of GLBT Jews in support of equal rights in Jerusalem.
