Jewish sect prohibits women driving

rabbiA London school has tried to ban mothers from driving their children to school, based on a religious pronouncement of Israeli Rabbi Yissachar Dov Rokeach. Last week the Belz educational institutions sent out a letter saying children would be expelled if their mothers drove them. The group appears to be backing down, after the British Equality and Human Rights Commission has declared it illegal.

The hat is called a “schtreimel” and can cost upwards of $5000.rabbi1
