A new religious group will launch a campaign on Tuesday against the LGBT+ community and in support of the “traditional family,” and plans to hold a demonstration in which protesters will attempt block a central junction in Tel Aviv. “Choosing Family — the Movement for Strengthening Family Values in Israel” was founded last week by Rabbi Azriel Ariel, of the West Bank settlement Ateret, and Rabbi Itai Elitzur. The conservative organization will publish and distribute informational material written by far-right activist Michael Pua, criticizing the “process of destroying traditional family values in the Western world, which is trickling into Israeli society and even into the religious community.”
