Eli wrote the clip online: & # 39; I was harassed, followed and threatened on the street today.

& # 39; Someone was upset that I was wearing a pink keppel, carrying a bag and sewing a proud patch on my jeans. & # 39;

The activist said he shared the video for three reasons and said he & # 39; loves his strange Jewish identity & # 39; after listening for the first 18 years of his life to people who told me I could not be gay and Jewish & # 39 ;.

He added: & # 39; This type of harassment is a fraction of what our trans- and gender-non-conforming family gets every day.

& # 39; As our ancestors taught us – none of us are safe until we are all safe. & # 39;

He answers: & # 39; Leave me alone. What, because I am gay and wear a Keppel? & # 39;

The man replies & # 39; it is Chillul Hashem & # 39 ;, referring to the act of violation of the name of God. He adds: & # 39; Every man lying with another man is an abomination. You get killed for it. Take the Keppel off. & # 39;
