The Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s law faculty students’ union voted Tuesday that there would be no partition for religious women students to dance behind at the annual faculty gala. The vote was 176 for and 211 against. […]
The decision to bring the matter to a vote was made after last year it was decided without a vote, following a request by a few students, to place a partition in the hall alongside a dance floor for men and women, so that religious women would be able to dance among women only. Following a protest the decision was rescinded and it was decided this year to put the matter to a vote.
