The US Supreme Court This Friday (9) first win A Jewish university denies membership to gay, bisexual and transgender youth group


Yeshiva University of New York filed an urgent Supreme Court appeal after a judge ordered a student club, the “Yeshiva Pride Alliance,” to register when the school returns in 2022, which would give the group access to certain rooms and services.


As a deeply religious Jewish university, Yeshiva cannot comply with the order because doing so would violate its true religious beliefs about how to educate its students in Torah values, the university says in its appeal.


The university offers many secular courses and welcomes non-Jewish students, so that “certain students cannot be denied access to secular resources because of their sexual orientation,” lawyers say.




On Friday, the conservative-majority Supreme Court suspended the judge’s decision to review the case, marking a first victory for the university.


As this is a snap decision, there is no need to justify it or indicate which judges support it.


Founded in the 19th century to “promote the study of the Talmud,” Yeshiva University has about 5,000 students.
