Opposition to Gay Pride Parade Increasing

(IsraelNN.com) The leader of the Lithuanian stream of the hareidi-Orthodox community, Rabbi Yosef Sholom Elyashiv, has joined the struggle to prevent the Gay Pride Parade in the capital in November.

Hareidi officials report that with Rabbi Elyashiv’s signature on the letter of protest, many more rabbinical figures will step forward and join the effort to prevent the parade from taking place.
