Haredi parties: Women have 'other role'

Published: 12.18.12, 13:13 / Israel News

Haredi parties Shas and the United Torah Judaism have responded to a request to bar them from the elections on the basis of excluding women from their party ticket: "The parties function, as demanded by the halacha (Jewish law), with clear segregation between men and women for reasons of modesty. Men have one role and women another role. This segregation does not exclude women, nor discriminate against them nor deem them less worthy than men".


A hearing on the request, filed by women's organizations, will be held tomorrow. (Telem Yahav)
