A group of Orthodox rabbis have called for a boycott of London’s JW3 Centre on Tuesday for hosting LGBT events and programming.

A letter signed by seven Orthodox rabbis called on community members to “distance themselves fully from JW3, its activities and services, and avoid using this centre.”

JWS is a Jewish community and arts centre in Hampstead that has served hundreds of thousands of patrons since opening in 2013.

The centre’s core principles include reflection the diversity of local Jewry and, “encouraging greater understanding between sections of the community or different faiths, and community revitalization.”

The centre’s programming featured GayW3 in March, which celebrated 50 years since the decriminalization of homosexuality.

The rabbis called JW3’s programming “Toievah”, or an abomination, and wrote that it, “promotes a way of life which is in total contradiction to Orthodox Judaism and Halacha.

“We are of the strong opinion that a red line has been crossed in launching campaigns and initiatives that promote lifestyles and behaviors forbidden and condemned by the Torah.”
