Chief rabbis come out against bus segregation

Published: 12.18.11, 11:12 / Israel News

Israel's chief rabbis spoke out against 'Mehadrin' bus lines, where women and men are segregated, in radio interviews on Sunday.


Rabbi Yona Metzer said, "This is not the haredi public's country. We have no authority to force our opinions on others. If we want separation, it's quite legitimate to create a special bus company for certain routes." Rabbi Shlomo Amar told Ynet, "A person can subject himself to a stricter code, but not others." (Ynet)
