Time for men to get out of girls school.....

The time is ripe for men to get jobs elsewhere. There is no need to have men reaching for Farbenging with girls, even more so in high school and seminary.
This is not okay. It never was okay. And it should not be tolerated. At all.

I never understood this practice and I have always felt that this represents a true hypocrisy in our community, and I’m considered a “modern” guy.
This only reinforces the idea “the rabbis make the rules only to exclude themselves from it”
There are BH enough capable woman to teach and run the sems, high schools etc. Just try imagining a woman giving a lesson in a yeshiva.

Yes!! This!!

Rabbis shouldn’t be farbrenging late into the night with women… especially single women. I worked in a sem as a dorm counselor and had many situations where I was extremely uncomfortable. One Rabbi, after some l’chaims, late at night with 30-40 girls surrounding him….doesnt sit right..and sometimes…if the Rabbi got too comfy… semi- inappropriate things happened. Unless your a Tzaddik vetov lo…A rabbi Should not put himself in a situation like this. A lecture for a designated amount of time, a class…thats ok..that cozy farbrengen style, late hours , young women…not ok…not ok

Rabbis have no business teaching girls

I went to a oot day school and looking back at my teen years there were two rabbis in particular who crossed many boundaries. Thankfully not talking physical boundaries, but emotional relationships were made. As a teen this never seemed inappropriate, quite the opposite I felt special to have this extra attention, getting extra talks after clases, gifts, phone calls etc. None of this ever seemed strange to me. As a married woman with kids now I am mortified. Being married I now realize how inappropriate these “friendships” I formed with married men were. There are plenty of knowledgable women… Read more »

100%% Totally inappropriate. However, an older man (50 plus) teaching a class (not farbrenging etc…) is certainly fine

U r 100% right. And so is everyone else commenting about the negatives of a male figure farbrenging with girls/women. Even as teachers, males should be relegated to teach males & women can very well teach women. We have some outstanding lamdaniyos today. This of course doesn’t apply to a one time talk/lecture. Am referring to teaching subject matter on a regular basis: day to day or week to week. If and where possible, best to keep the genders separate.
