Shul fears girls too vis­i­ble

The Jewish Chronicle - - News - BY SI­MON ROCKER

THE RABBI of one of Lon­don’s old­est strictly Ortho­dox syn­a­gogues has been wor­ry­ing that its women are too vis­i­ble to men at prayer.

In a letter to the Hendon Adath Yis­roel board, Rabbi Pin­chas Roberts pro­prosed re­plac­ing its lat­tice­work me­chitzah (par­ti­tion) with one-way glass, so that women could have an “unob­structed view” of synagogue pro­ceed­ings and men fo­cus on prayer “with­out any dis­trac­tion”.

But a synagogue spokesman said the idea had now been with­drawn.
