Gay man wins discrimination case against Jerusalem pizzeria

A gay man thrown out of a Jerusalem pizzeria last summer won his lawsuit against the restaurant, according to a report on the Kol Israel Reshet Bet radio station.

Ben Yehuda Pizza must pay 16,000 NIS in damages to Sammy Kanter, an American who was a rabbinical student at the time.

Kanter wrote in The Jerusalem Post last September of his ordeal. He was celebrating LGBTQ+ Pride weekend in Jerusalem, and was wearing a rainbow-colored shirt when he entered the pizzeria.

"After we entered the shop," Kanter wrote, "the employee greeted us and handed out menus. Immediately, his demeanor shifted after looking at my shirt. He asked if I was gay. After responding 'Yes,' he simply said, 'Get out.' He proceeded to repeat that phrase, and another threatening employee followed us up the street until we were a block from the shop."
