    Where? In Israel? Not the direction it is going or even finds itself in today. State Judaism in control and they have been at it for decades. Women-thank God for not creating me one!! What can one expect with swuch a daily reminder. The near physical presence can bring with it enticing odors and scents that can lead to an erection (God forbid!!), the physical presence onh the street can lead to perdition (God forbid!) and the sin of listening to a female voice (God forbid!) can lead directly to..........well, modesty prevents one from even mentioning it. Male and female He made them, hence, they are to be seperate in when in the fulfillment of the mitzvah of prur oorvu they must be seperate and covered. The daughters of Israel in Beit Shemesh should serve as the model for the future and that is by employing the "sal". This state Judaism has become a formulistic, arid corpse of itself. It neglects the needs of the poor, the widow, the stranger and has been active or complicit in forming a society that glorifies minutiae and fanaticism over the values of Torah. They have become anathema to any form of true spiritiuality having descended into a pit of empty form, praxis and rigid judgementalism.
