CWN Editor's Note: In September, the US Supreme Court declined to hear a bid by Yeshiva University to block the enforcement of a state order requiring the school to grant official recognition to the YU Pride Alliance. The Orthodox Jewish school, located in New York, then put all extracurricular activities on hold, rather than recognize the Pride Alliance.

The school has now created the Kol Yisrael Areivim Club, which will “provide students with space to grow in their personal journeys, navigating the formidable challenges that they face in living a fully committed, uncompromisingly authentic” Orthodox Jewish life. The Pride Alliance called the move a “desperate stunt,” and litigation will continue.
