The owners of Pitzuchei Mizrachi said they would arrange separate entrances for men and women, after they were recommended to do so by a kashrus mashgiach. He advised them to prevent situations whereby men and women are there during the busy shopping hours when the store is crowded.

The decision was widely lauded by leaders of the chareidi community, who issued notices supporting the store’s new policy.
