The radio station will pay 12,000 shekels and read an apology on the broadcast, following a publication from which it was implied that the rabbi supports conversion therapies • Gal Ohovsky: "Ridiculous and humiliating"

NIS 12,000 and an apology on the air:

A victory for Rabbi Yigal Levinstein in his lawsuit against the Gali Tzahal military broadcast station.

The station will pay the rabbi and the Bnei David preparatory school NIS 11,700 and will broadcast an apology on the broadcast, according to a compromise agreement reached between the parties in a lawsuit filed in the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court in June.

In the defamation lawsuit filed by the rabbi who heads the Bnei David pre-military preparatory school in June for NIS 140,000, it was alleged that the "Boker Tov Yisrael" program published an item based on recordings from a zoom lesson given by Rabbi Levinstein in May, which showed that he supported conversion therapies. .

In the lawsuit filed by Rabbi Levinstein against the station, it was alleged that his remarks (and then his response brought at the end of the program) were taken out of context and distorted, so that the impression was created that he supported conversion therapies.

Rabbi Levinstein, it is claimed, supports the provision of treatments to adolescents who have experienced a traumatic event or gender confusion and seek help, but he opposes performing such treatments by force.

However, the rabbi did not deny that the treatments he supports are intended to nullify teens who feel attracted to members of the same sex, and that they should be able to live a heterosexual life.

As stated, as part of the agreement reached between the parties, it was ruled that the station must compensate the rabbi and prepares in an amount that includes legal expenses and attorney's fees, as well as read an apology that was broadcast this morning (Monday) in this language: , We reported on a lesson given by Rabbi Levinstein Bezom to the students of the Bnei David Preparatory School.

The report implied that Rabbi Levinstein supports conversion therapies, while in practice the rabbi stated later in the lesson that he opposes conversion therapies, and that the advice he offers on the matter is given only to those who contact him voluntarily and it is clearly not a conversion therapy for him.

So here we make it clear here as well.

To the extent that the good name of Rabbi Levinstein and the Bnei David preparatory school were harmed, "the IDF wave system is ready to apologize to them."

The agreement further stipulates that all parties involved in the affair will not publish "additions or reservations of any kind, neither at the time of publication, nor before or after it, including neither on social networks nor on the Internet."

Following the publication of the compromise reached between the parties, journalist Gal Ohovsky, who also serves as chairman of Iggy (Proud Youth Organization), posted an angry post on Facebook in which he wrote:

ridiculous.

degrading.

Unbelievable".
