Haredi sign tells women to wait secluded by synagogue

Another example of Haredi segregation run amok:
A sign ordering women to "wait for their husbands in a concealed area" has caused a stir among activists working against the exclusion of women from the public sphere in Israel.

The latest sign, one of a series of similar billboards in ultra-Orthodox Jerusalem neighborhoods, was placed opposite a synagogue and reads: "A request and demand."

"Wait for your husband behind the white van and such places so that you won't serve as an obstacle to those praying," the sign says, according to a picture of the sign published by Channel 2 news.

"Women waiting for their husbands are requested to strictly obey! Wait only in secluded spaces such as behind the white van and not opposite the entrance to the synagogue, so that there won't be any mishaps or obstacles, God forbid, to those praying inside and to students of the Beit Midrash."

The sign is the latest manifestation in what some are calling the increasing exclusion of ultra-Orthodox women from public spaces.
If it's a demand, then it's no longer a request. In the end, it's only a sad example of how Haredi Judaism has ruined itself over exaggerated notions of sex segregation.

Same thing is suggested in Lakewood NJ. Not sure if it ever got accepted, I left and do not go back.
