Ketzaleh: Our Holy Torah Respects Women Completely


Chairman of the National Union party MK Yaakov Katz (Ketzaleh) responded to the lighthearted conversation between the Defense Minister and the IDF CoS on the singing of women in the IDF. “Our Holy Torah Honors women completely. The Law I proposed with MKs Hotovely and Michaeli respects the wish of women to sing as much as they please. The law merely aims to exempt from penalty one whose religious conscience has a true perspective on the respect of women, one who believes that the honor of a woman is not in a public stage appearance, and out of respect for her modesty refuses to hear her public performance.”
