Following last month's court order to close, a New Jersey nonprofit that offered to turn gays to heterosexuals is soliciting donations to pay its legal bills.

A judge agreed with four plaintiffs who accused Jews Offering New Alternatives for Healing (JONAH) of peddling therapies that violate the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act.

In an email to supporters, JONAH co-directors Arthur Goldberg and Elaine Silodor Berk called the court's ruling a “tragic miscarriage of justice” that reflects “the near triumph of political correctness and the gay activist agenda in the USA.”

“However, we fervently believe that the Torah's traditional values on sexuality and the family will triumph in the end because these universal laws produce the most just societies which, in turn, offer G-d given truths for all humanity to follow,” the email claims.

The group also asked for donations to help defray legal costs – “JONAH's bank account will be open to accept donations until mid-May 2016” – and announced the formation of a new organization, the Jewish Institute for Global Awareness (JIFGA).

JIFGA's mission will be to “educate the public on the Noahide laws” that require “the establishment of a justice system and courts of law to enforce” the Seven Universal Laws, which include prohibiting “immorality and forbidden sexual relations.”
