Stop charedi men who wonít sit next to women

THE Jewish Telegraph last week had a story on three female tourists who were barred from a clifftop cable car in Israel because a group of charedi men would not share the cable car with them.

And the previous week there a the story about four charedi men refusing to sit next to women on an El Al flight from New York to Tel Aviv.

It does not matter whether it is racial or gender bigotry, it is wrong.

When you buy a ticket to travel, you accept the seating arrangements ó or walk.

Religion has to adapt to the world we live in.

What was acceptable 2,000 years ago is not acceptable now.
