Desexualizing Public Space

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/morethodoxy/item/desexualizing_public_space_20120207

Rabbi Zev Farber argues for the desexualizing of public space by explaining the Jewish Laws of modesty (tzniut) as being sociologically contingent. The article claims that both men and women have responsibilities in this regard. Rabbi Farber supports and reframes Rabbi Dov Linzer's NY Times op-ed on the subject of modesty, halakha, and the crisis in modern-day Israel in the wake of some critiques, specifically that of Professor Shaul Magid.
