The Westboro Baptist Church, founded by infamous “pastor” Fred Phelps will be picketing Yeshiva University, one of the largest and most prestigious Jewish  yeshivas in New York City on March 27, 2017  from 9:45 AM – 10:30 AM.

In a statement posted on their website, the Westboro Baptist Church stated: “The Lord God entrusted His Holy Word to the ancient Israelites long  ago.  Their  modern  descendants  have  sorely  despised  and disregarded that manna from heaven to their detriment”

The Westboro Baptist Church teaches that Jews are responsible for killing Jesus Christ and believe that 144,000 Jews will become Christians before the end times. This is one of the most re-occurring antisemitic libel throughout history and is responsible for the deaths of millions of Jews.

Although the WBC is few in number, antisemitism is alive and well. A  poll back in 2013 found that more than 25% of Americans believed that the Jews are responsible for killing Jesus Christ. According to the ADL, more than 1.9 billion people harbored anti-Semitic beliefs.

Let us look forward to the day when the nations will come to the full understanding of G-d and will live together in peace and harmony.
