The US Supreme Court has granted temporary permission for an Orthodox Jewish university in New York to deny official recognition to an LGBTQ student group.
Yeshiva University turned to the court for an urgent ruling after a New York state judge said the school had to let the Pride Alliance register as a student association, which would give it access to certain facilities and services.
“As a deeply religious Jewish university, Yeshiva cannot comply with that order because doing so would violate its sincere religious beliefs about how to form its undergraduate students in Torah values,” the university stated in its appeal.
On Friday, the Supreme Court, which has a 6-3 conservative majority, granted an emergency request by the university, suspending the state judge’s decision pending further deliberation.
As is often the case in emergency rulings, the court did not give the reasoning behind its decision or a breakdown of the vote on it.
Yeshiva University was founded more than 100 years ago to promote the study of Judaism and has a student body of about 5,000. But it also gives degrees in a variety of non-religious areas such as biology or accounting.
The clash is part of a broader debate in the United States on striking a balance between religious rights and the principles of non-discrimination.
