There is a store located at 1632 Coney Island Avenue – directly across from Yeshiva Chaim Berlin – which sells Shaitels (wigs for women).
In the front window of the store, there are four, large, inappropriate, photos of women – with the point being that it should attract a persons attention and look.
When approached nicely by the Yungerleit to remove the photos, the owner answered that “this is not Bnei Brak”.
I don’t want to further delve into this mans other excuses, and answers which were all filled with Chutzpah, but I am requesting that until the Pritzus photos are removed from the store windows, no one from our community should enter this store.
Filled with shame, and embarrassment that I needed to write this letter – but felt it was necessary due to Kavod Hatorah,
Rav Aaron M. Schecter, Rosh Yeshiva Chaim Berlin.
