Segregation of the sexes reaches Israeli youth club

The “women singer ban” phenomenon has reached Tel Aviv high schools. A recent Haaretz inquiry has revealed that an alternative youth movement, “Yehuda and Israel” – with whom year 10 students are required to participate in a “Personal Commitment” program – recently hosted a performance in which female singers performed, and male audience members were forbidden. In addition, the youth movement had held numerous performances with male-only lineups.

Yehuda and Israel established the “Bima Lenoar” (Stage for Youth) club, which prides itself as an association committed to “instilling values of cooperation, unity and contribution to the community via the performing arts.”

But Haaretz learned that the club hosted dozens of performances with Israel’s leading singers – almost only men.
