To Dan and Ray, forgive me for saying but you are exposing your own ignorance. Of course women are allowed to sing. A Jewish man is not allowed to listen to a woman singing. It is his obligation. A propos the soldiers, they didn't try to stop women from singing, they wanted to excuse themselves so that they wouldn't have to listen. Can you not grasp the difference? As for not working, are you kidding? Whilst there are some differences between different frum groups, most religious men want their wives to work, and many have professional and academic qualifications. Maybe you should try getting information from a source other than leftwing antireligious media outlets.
