February 17, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) Jewish leaders in the U.K. have stated that they will oppose educational authorities and not allow their schools to teach about homosexual and other lifestyles that are prohibited by the Torah.
Chinuch U.K., an organization that represents Britains main strictly Orthodox Jewish communities, has issued a defiant challenge to the government by insisting their schools cannot discuss LGBT-related issues with pupils, according to The Jewish Chronicle.
The statement was reportedly prompted by recent visits to Jewish schools by government inspectors, who made it clear that primary schools have to teach children about LGBT equality.
In 2018, Rabbi Mordechai Rose, who is affiliated with Chinuch U.K., wrote an article explaining his concern that Orthodox Jewish schools would be closed down after having their status downgraded by government inspectors from outstanding to inadequate because they did not prepare the students for life in secular modern Britain but for life in the Orthodox Jewish community. Earlier in 2018, almost 7,000 Orthodox Jews had gathered in communal prayer in opposition to attempts by educational authorities to make them teach values contrary to the Torah in their schools.
The statement released by the Jewish group last week says schools should not describe to pupils lifestyles prohibited by the Torah and should ensure that inspectors do not speak to pupils about these matters at all.
It says schools, when asked by inspectors, should state clearly and respectfully that they do not cover these subjects.
