Israel High Court upholds ban on Sukkot gender segregation in Jerusalem - Haaretz
Large billboards posted throughout the capital’s ultra-Orthodox neighborhoods last week forbade women to enter Mea She’arim Street during the Sukkot celebration.
“Women … are requested to use alternative streets on their way home and to synagogues … to help prevent mingling,” the posters said.
Religiously, they are making this up. It’s new, it’s wacky, it’s nowhere in our history or literature. Or perhaps Mea She’arim is Pey’ton Pla’ce? Hmmm.
