Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem Aryeh Stern visited on Friday the victims of Thursday's stabbing attack who were taking part in the Jerusalem pride march.

He spoke with those injured and denounced the attack as "totally contrary to the Torah" during his visit to the Hadassah Ein Karem hospital where the victims are being treated
