The Heter for Gazing at a Woman

Melissa Mark-Viverito, Speaker of NYC City Council

Check out these Haredi askanim gazing at a woman whose clothing is definitely not tznius.

Lest anyone cast aspersions or impute impure thoughts, let me hasten to explain. The woman in blue is Melissa Mark-Viverito, Speaker of the City Council for New York City.

Rest assured that the askanim did not see blue but green,  not the shape of a woman but the shape of a dollar sign, and in their minds all her parts were covered with potential grants and contracts.

  1. Does anyone know about r etan finer speaking by 1 of his sermons before or on Yom Tov to protect Rdw…..

  2. Ezra Friedlander, sitting front right, gave the heter. The same heter he used with his friend Christine Quinn.

    Ezra is a descendant of the Rebbes of Belz, Lizhensk, Berdichev, Apt, Lublin, Kozhnitz, Liska, and others. So he is a big expert on such things.

    • As of a few weeks ago he was still living with son-in-law in Monsey, NY. Some of the women who could have brought criminal charges are for the moment willing to hold off as long as he stays out of the rabbinate so there is no pressing question of him “fleeing” to Israel. The word is that he is dead in the water for other jobs because a few of the “gedolim” (especially R. Shmuel Kaminetzky) are determined to wreck his efforts to set up shop anywhere else in any rabbinical or counseling role.
