An Israeli supermarket said it will remove a sign at one of its mehadrin (strictly kosher) branch that makes entrance conditional on “modest dress only.”
The Israel Movement for Progressive Judaism’s Israel Religious Action Center filed a complaint with the Mahsanei Hashuk supermarket over the sign.
The supermarket said that in response to the complaint, its Ashdod branch will replace the existing sign with one that phrases the reference to modest dress as a request.
The center complained about the signs to Ashdod Mayor Yehiel Lasri, reminding him that the municipality is responsible for signage in public places. “Even if a permit was requested for such a sign, you should have refused to grant it, given the serious undermining of women’s rights,” the center’s representatives wrote, but have yet to receive an answer.
