Hebrew University Students Vote Against Mechitzah At Dancing Event


Hebrew University of Yerushalayim’s law students’ union voted 211 versus 176 against having a mechitzah at the department’s annual celebration. This was after some students protested against last year’s decision to provide a mechitzah in order to enable religious female students to dance among women only. Some faculty members even threatened to boycott the event and withdraw funding if a mechitzah was erected.

MK Shuli Moalem-Refaeli of Habayit Hayehudi wrote to Hebrew University President Menahem Ben-Sasson that she was shocked at the threatened boycott and noted that all the religious students wanted was respect for their worldview; they were not demanding to force their lifestyle on others.

  1. Yeah,but they want to force their secular world view on the religious.The religious should boycott the event,and insist on an alternative religious event since the secular won’t compromise.

  2. This is a sign we have much to do to improve rights for jews in Israel.

    The anti-faith voices are hot headed hate.

    Evil makes no concession for the active. Miserable story.

    A missed affair.
