    Brilliant response to the mechitza issue. Just goes to show you how even the thorniest matters can be diffused with chassidus and a bit of sechel. This offers us a tremendous lesson, with so many ways to apply this to our personal and communal conflicts.

    I believe his answer was partially correct. Separate seating IS because of the Bais Hamikdosh. The Machitza however is there so you don’t look at anything improper while saying a “dover she’bkdusha” (see Igros Moshe on this issue)

    You completely missed the important point of R’ Jacobson’s discussion. You can explain the reason for the ezras noshim in the Beis Hamikdash in different ways, which carry over to the different reasons for the mechitza in a shul (in Igros Moshe or otherwise), but it absolutely originates from the ezras noshim in the Beis Hamikdash, and that’s all that is relevant here.

    As usual. The manner of presentation makes me thirst for more and keeps me intrigued! Helps me in many areas.
    Thank you Rabbi

    The Mechitza has nothing to do with the bais hamikdosh. If it was only for the B”H you were allowed two open spaces and NO mechitzah. Again see Igros Moshe on this. The need for “separation” is originated from the B”H, yet the need for “no visibility” is unrelated.
