Chassidic Music at the Tel Aviv Gay Parade


Until about two years ago, different Jewish religious directions (especially the Haredim) made a complete fuss about the "Gay Parades" in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. "No such weirdo animal - like events in the Holy City and in the Holy Land". Male homosexuality is forbidden according to the Torah and there is no need for such stupid parades showing the Yetzer HaRah from its worst side.

Then haredi Rabbis decided not to refer to the events anymore and just ignore them. A very good decision and I have been following their example so far. My intention was not to write about the Tel Aviv Gay Parade taking place yesterday (Friday) afternoon. Although I work and live near where the parade passed, I wasn't anxious seeing anything connected to it. There were male gays running around in underwear and viking hats; some male gays even wore bikinis. Nevertheless, I ignored them despite the fact that it was just disgusting seeing this. At least there were no children around.

Why I decided writing about the "animal parade" is a certain situation making me very upset. I heard the loud music of the parade coming closer and the music mainly consisted of FEMALE pop songs which I found a bit strange. Only pop songs sung by women ? But, okay.

Suddenly that Gay Parade decided to play Jewish religious music such as "HaKadosh Baruch Hu, anachnu ohavim otcha" as well as two songs from a Breslover Nana CD. Example: "Mishe Ma'amin lo mefached ...".

I know that many gays try convincing other people that they are normal, that there is nothing wrong with homosexuality and that G - d loves them. It is only the bad Haredim demonstrating against them but G - d is actually in favour of "Men wearing Bikinis". I just couldn't believe how far the gays would go in order to live such a lie.

As I said, male homosexuality is forbidden according to the Torah and whoever lives his sexual perversion, has to face the consequences. There is no way around and I can play as many religious songs as I like.

Especially male homosexuality damages the body and, in particular, the soul. The ARIZAL, Rabbi Yitzchak Luria (1534 - 1572), states in the "Kitve'i HaAri" (Sefer Sha'ar HaGilgulim) that if a Jew has certain bad habits (behaviour), he probably took them over from his former Gilgul (Reincarnation) from the animal world. Example: If a human being likes to show his naked body, his former Gilgul must have been an animal. Now, as a human in this world, his task is to overcome certain behaviour damages and turn them into something positive.

When I saw some of the male gays running to their parade yesterday, the expression "animal" would have even been an offense to an animal, as even animals behave more civilized. Using Jewish religious music as a justification or in order to make Haredim upset is simply stupid. If the gays are longing for acceptance, their parade actions caused the opposite and they made a fool of themselves.


  1. Chabad has created, as per the Rebbe's instructions, an organization which offers Kosher alternatives to who have a same sex atraction. The organization is called "JONAH" which stands for "Judaism Offers New Alternatives to Homosexuality." Go here:

    The message is quite clear: homosexuality should be treated as a disease which needs a cure, as the Rebbe said. Unfortunately, for those who are liying to us claiming that people can be born homosexual and it's not up to us to chose our sexual orientation, JONAH has a huge success and proved INDEED that YOU HAVE A CHOICE and that NOBODY can be born homosexual. In fact, people who are homosexual chose it, and that in most cases, if not all, they became homosexuals after a trauma (mostly sentimal trauma, and repeated failures with girls). It angers many pro-gay associations that in fact, you can be healed from homosexuality.

    Seeing the success of JONAH, more and more Rabbis are trying to change them, as you can read another example here:

    And there are also successful. So do'nt believe those who say that you cannot change because you were born like that.

    There is a question I always have: why is it that everytime they are parading, gays need to be provocative in the way they dress and the way they behave in public? It shows clearly that there are animals.

    Thanks a lot for the links and I will have a look !

  3. Amazing how Rabbainu Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman is extending his help even into such dark places!!!
    Rabbainu is very insistent about the importance of judging people favorably, however he says when it comes to this subject, one should not judge favorably, and yet Rabbainu himself is still available reaching out to help them.
    Great blessings of Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman!

  4. JONAH is a harmful organization that ruins the lives of frum yidden. Many of my friends have been psychologically damaged by the organization.

    Please get your facts straight...

    I would not call a Jew practicing homosexuality "frum".
