Israeli Rabbi Bans Women From Driving

The order by Rabbi Avraham Yosef prohibits women from driving, especially in Israeli cities predominantly inhabited by ultraorthodox Jews, Ahram Online news website reported.

Yosef is the chief rabbi in the city of Holon and is the son of Rabbi Afodia Yosef -- Shas' spiritual leader.

The Jewish figure justified the decree by saying that driving for women does not reflect modesty or chastity, especially in cities mostly inhabited by religious people.'
