Come on, fellas – if you’re gonna tell a lady how to dress modestly, you could at least put some tear-off coupons on your posters so she knows where to pick up one of those cheap Korean wigs…
Via Israel National News:
Haredi radicals in Beit Shemesh have been involved in a long-running legal battle over ‘modesty signs’, which demand women not enter their neighborhoods in immodest attire. Beit Shemesh was first ordered to remove the signs in 2015, when the Supreme Court said that they “cause serious harm to human dignity, equality, personal choice, and autonomy.”
In December, police forcibly removed the offending signs in several areas in both Beit Shemesh and Ramat Beit Shemesh Bet. However, extremists put the signs back up within an hour, in addition to spray painting “guidelines” on the sidewalk directing women to walk on separate sides of the street when approaching a synagogue or religious institution…
Mayor Moshe Abutbul requested that the Supreme Court remove the municipality from the issue, since several attempts to remove the signs have been made, but it is not feasible to remove them on a daily basis due to the exorbitant cost of bringing in riot police to contend with the inevitable riots.
