A group of rabbis is speaking out about their new ad in the subways, created in response to a controversial anti-jihad campaign.
Rabbis for Human Rights North America will run an ad that reads "In the choice between love and hate, choose love. Help end bigotry against our Muslim neighbors."
The ad will run in the same 10 city subway stations as an ad from the American Freedom Defense Initiative.
The MTA was unable to block a series of subway ads from the American Freedom Defense Initiative that labeled the enemies of Israel as "savages."
A representative for Rabbis for Human Rights North America said the original ads do not speak for all Jews.
"We want to put up ads that very clearly said that the Jewish community doesn't stand for racist language, doesn't stand for hate speech and supports partnership with our Muslim neighbors," said Rabbi Jill Jacobs from Rabbis for Human Rights North America.
The American Freedom Defense Initiative said the ad isn't anti-Muslim but anti-jihad.
The American Freedom Defense Initiative will now put their ads up in the Washington D.C. subway system.
The MTA originally refused to display them but a court ruled that decision violated the First Amendment.
