What is a car? It’s a replacement for a carriage. There never were women carriage drivers,‘ says Rabbi Amnon Yitzhak.
The renowned Haredi rabbi Amnon Yitzhak, famous for his Jewish outreach activities, has ruled that it is forbidden for women to drive according to Jewish law on the ground that it is immodest, the haredi website Kikar Hashabbat reported.
Speaking in Kiryat Shmuel near Haifa last week, Yitzhak said that Torah sages did not approve of women driving at all and cited a ruling of Rabbi Shmuel Wosner, one of the most respected haredi rabbis alive today as having also prohibited women from driving.
