Nineteen rabbis were cuffed Monday night outside a Trump hotel near Columbus Circle while protesting the President’s ban on travelers from seven Muslim-majority nations, police and activists said.
The clergy members — seven men and 12 women — are members of T’ruah Rabbis, a liberal Jewish group that opposes President Trump’s executive order.
“Tradition teaches us to be kind to the plight of refugees,” T’ruah co-chair Rabbi Rachel Gartner said after marching with group.
“Mazal Tov to our Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum – her 15th arrest, and her 25th year at CBST! We kvell! The pictures may be blurry but the message is clear,” wrote CBST on its Facebook page.
