Is it just me, or are rabbis getting as strict as mullahs these days?
Female legislators in Israel have seen red after a leading rabbi compared women who wear the color to prostitutes.Since when are prostitutes wearing red? Is that their new “gang” color? I always thought the only thing red was the color of the district they worked in. Seriously, I don’t know a lot about jewish laws, but I do know the Old Testament doesn’t specify a color women aren’t supposed to wear. It only states they are to dress demurely. I think you can do that, and wear red at the same time. Perhaps it depends on the style of clothing.
Protesting against a ritual ruling by Rabbi Eliyahu Abergil, head of the rabbinical court in the southern city of Beersheba, banning Jewish women from dressing in red, several woman lawmakers wore the color in parliament Monday.
