Photo Of The Day

Yesterday 90,000 Orthodox Jews crowded New Jersey's MetLife Stadium where females were shrouded behind a barricade in the uppermost tier so that men could not lay their lustful eyes upon them.
As the rabbis began the prayers, hundreds of women around the stadium reached out and pulled sections of a massive curtain across their rows of seats. The $250,000 translucent curtain, made of green woven plastic, extended for nearly 2.5 linear miles, shielding the women’s area from view, and ensuring that the stringent modesty standards laid out by traditional Orthodox observance were met.
