Health education booklet adapted for Haredi schools

What makes this education manual workable is if they remain honest about including women/girls in it:
The Ministry of Education has decided for the first time to promote a program that teaches a healthy and active lifestyle to children in ultra-Orthodox kindergartens - but only once it has been especially adapted for the religious children. Included in the adapted version, is a special focus on the health-related aspects of the Jewish holidays. So, for example, the children learn about the virtues of healthy fruits like pomegranates and dates, which are among the seven species of fruits and grains named in the Torah. [...]

The illustrations drawn in the program's booklet were changed as well: the boys are dressed modestly, with yarmulkes on their heads and sidelocks. Under their shirts, the fringes of their tzitzit peek out. The girls are drawn as modestly dressed as well.
If this is so, and girls will make appearances inside without Haredi leaders acting as though the female species is nothing more than inhuman sexual objects, then this version can be appreciated.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
