    what is wrong about Haredim separating men and women. Interesting, too, it wasn't so long ago, in my own grandparents generation, people who were raised on the moraes of Eastern and Central European Jewry, hardly all Haredi, and some what might be considered Conservative-Mesorati by todays standards, that social gatherings were "gender separated", and nobody fliched.or even chepped. Indeed, the uncles and the aunts, the grandparents, all treated each iother quite well with equanimity. That today things are different, well . . . if some Jews choose to continue this pattern, it's their business. If they are happy with it, why "yell fire" in this overcrowded theater. T'would seem to me its agenda of the Reform movement to "reform" Judasism by trashing anything that stands in its way, in this case, the Halachically Observant Jews that continue to accept the concept that the Torah was given to Moses on Mt. Sinai and passed on directly through the designated authorities over the generations. You think it's historical and can be changed, okay, let us disagree in a friendly manner, but having studied withi Hartman, you should know better than to make intolerant statments.
