New Haredi Eyeglasses Blur Vision So Men Don't See Women

Haredi blurred glassesNew haredi eyeglasses marketed in the Mea Shearim neighborhood of Jerusalem are meant to blur vision to prevent men from seeing women on the street.

Haredi blurred glasses

The new glasses blur the vision of the men who wear them, so these men cannot clearly see anything ten feet or more away, Yediot Achranot's Hebrew website Mynet reports. For men who already wear regular glasses, the company offers stickers which can cover the lenses to create the necessary blur.

The glasses and lense stickers are being marketed specifically to help men avoid seeing 'immodestly' dressed women on the street.

Great idea, they can walk around with blinders and leave everyone alone. The bad thing is that soon you won't be considered religious unless you wear these, and the modern orthodox will feel guilty not wearing them, and artscroll will suggest that its best to have them, etc...

Another silly story. Well done!

At LEAST NOW THE WOMAN WILL BE ABLE TO WALK WITHOUT BEING HARRASED.

I have suggested this in previous posts! (I wonder if the manufacturer is an FM reader? )

I like this solution. Let the men wear these glasses and get the heck out of the way of women!

see how smart we jews are?

pierre,
it's not silly. it's downright scary and sad.

I hope that those who buy these do not have driver's licenses.

You can just touch the lenses with your fingers and not polish them - no need to buy stickers.... Does anyone really believe that this story is true?

Gefilte Fish says: "I hope that those who buy these do not have driver's licenses."

They drive without licenses anyway! They don't recognize the licenses issued by the evil Zionist regime.

Does that mean they will stop throwing stones at women and stop spitting at little girls on their way to their 2nd grade classrooms?

There is something poetic about this.

They are putting actual blinders on, to mirror the emotional and mental blinders they wear.

Perhaps the men who use these will walk out into the middle of traffic.

It's a start.

No, because these guys will take the glasses off to look just to be sure that the women is something they should be wearing the glasses to avoid.

I keep saying it - just when you think they can do nothing any more insane, they manage to outdo their previous insanity.

I hope that those who buy these do not have driver's licenses.

Me too! The frumma are bad enough drivers, even when they can see.

Unlike you, I am not "scared". This is silly and I doubt that more than a dozen people would actually spendthrow out 5 bucks on this nonsense.

I don't see why people can't accept the fact that there is a lunatic fringe out there and leave it as such.

What goes on here is akin to a group of people who spends their time *reporting* on and commenting on the doings of the mentally retarded and implying, indirectly, that this is what humans are all about.

Most *thinking* and sane people would recognize this as a silly fad that will fade away in short order. This is not a haredi custom and will never be.

It does accomplish two goals though, it keeps Shmarya *employed* and does give his followers something to laugh about.

This:

and this:

are mutually exclusive. Haredi culture has nothing to do with thought or sanity.

It's a subculture that has institutionalized the fellating of baby boys. Nothing else need be said.

this has to be a joke I hope

pierre,

you're the second person this week that just doesn't get it.
what we're pointing out and what is scary to me (and i admit it is uber silly at the same time) that they actually come up with these things and call it hasidic jewishness. it's NOT. that's what scares me.
skip over my comments.

have a nice day.

seymour,

Lol
i feel the same way.
but living here in monsey, i dare say it may not be a joke.
they're just making up more as they go along.
the torah itself is fine as it is.
almost.

Does that mean they will stop throwing stones at women and stop spitting at little girls on their way to their 2nd grade classrooms?

oh there is plenty in it that by today’s standard is not that nice

Jeff -iNTERESTINGLY THERE WAS AN ARTICLE MANY YEARS AGO IN THE TIMES ABOUT HASSIDIM WEARING GLASSES,THE REPORT SAID IT IS BECAUSE MANY OF THEM SIT AND LEARN LOOKING CLOSELY AT THE BOOK,AN UNCLE OF MINE HAD THICK GLASSES GOT THEM AT AN EARLY AGE HE KEPT TELLING ME THAT ITS BEACUSE OF THE HEIDER WHERE HE SPENT ALL DAY LEARNING HE WAS A SATMER STUDENT PRE WW2.

I've heard similar things myself.

Isn't wearing these a sacanat nefesh as one cannot see cars clearly while crossing the streets?

Purim comes early

did yuo nknow theseglasses acn also work for itnrenet?
I an musing thme now nad they wrok great!
yuo can evenwatchporn whit them!
yuu shjuld get a pairfor yuor rabbit!

Today during Shemona Esrei I am going to daven that this story isn't true.

Kosher diapers, glasses that help people not see. Creative merchandising FTW!

Another couple of product suggestions: kosher gas masks to filter out all non-kosher particles on the street. One must be a large and expensive kosher air purifier unit to filter all non-kosher particles from one's residence. Air must be kosher after all.

Sunshine spreads itself over everything, including things non-kosher. This sort of contamination makes daylight non-kosher.

How can we merchandise something to make the sun kosher? Any ideas?

Methinks this a hoax.

Now that's what I call enterprising capitalism. May be they sell contacts that will blot out the image of my boss?

Im running to get them!!!!! Now when they will bump into a Nekieveh "by mistake" they will be able to blame the glasses that distorted thier vision!!!!!

What guinesses in perversion they are!!!!!

http://rebeljew.blogspot.com/2006/06/plagues-of-pharisees.html

Note particularly the paragraph on the "kizai Pharisee" - from Mes. Sotah.

Haredim - kvar kadmucha rabanan.

Not to mention, there is probably a great aftermarket here.

Hey, my son needs a parnasa, any suggestions? He's really good at selling.

Sure, here are my old glasses. I meant to throw them out. They are all scratched up. I dropped them a few times too many. You think he can sell them?

Hey, the kid can sell anything. He will know what to do. Hey son, can you sell Mr. Levy's old glasses.

Sure, Ta. I have a great idea.

I'll bet that is how this started.

I've heard that the vision problems are due to the davening; the constant back and forth motion while reading forces the eye to shift focus near/far/near/far, every few second or two.

But seriously, SR, do you have a source for this? Satire or Poe?

"It does accomplish two goals though, it keeps Shmarya *employed* and does give his followers something to laugh about."

Pierre, I'm happy you are one of his followers and keeping Shmarya employed.

A friend of mine is a mo eye doctor and he tells me that some of his pashents come to him lately asking for this lazer operation were they do the reverse, so if you have good eyesite before you cannot see so well at a distance afterwards. That way, if a secular women is walking on theother side of the street you cannot seeher clearly but you still can see well enough to learn. He wont' do the operation but he says he knows of some whho do.

Please tell me this is a joke.

I have a good suggestion that my father told me about pre ww2 in european towns there was no cement covering the ground so whenever someone urinated on the ground on shabbas it made a pit which is asur so he says people were getting seives through which you can urinate without making a pit in the ground there you have it lets sell seives for shabbas urination especially in the summer time in the country:).

The story is just not true. Yes it was reported in an Israeli newspaper but it's really very simple.

Some reporter with an ax to grind saw glasses for sale. Many glasses come with a piece of plastic on them indicating the manufacturer or the strength.

That's all this is.

The whole story is BS.

I can' blame Shmarya who copied it accurately. It's the original story that just nonsense.

No one has ever advised such a thing.

The Charedi world doesn't think like this. They'd rather ban women from the streets.

Silly time waster.

LOL!! jancsibasci hit it out of the ball park again!!! exactly right.

This is so insane, I am going to lose it.
I got a suggestion to the Rabbis: How about teaching PERSONAL SELF-CONTROL as opposed to self-mutilations, because you can't control your dick.
MORONS.
Are Haredi men this mentally weak??? that they can't function around women without wanting to jump all over them?? Go jack off. Spill the seed. God made TONS of it. Oy.

This can't be real, for many practical reasons (no, not necessarily the "normal" reasons that other societies would have, but logistical reasons). But it makes for great summer reading fun.

Pierre/I can't accept this lunatic fringe because I do have gentiles in my family and I hate to hear anything "deragotaroy" albeit true about(with regards to the Haredi) "Jews." The fact is the majority of "Jews" are productive, smart, funny creative people and they are in the shadows of the "Haredi."....and are not respect because of this lunatic fringe of whom TOO MANY are criminals and are constantly in the news for serious white collar crimes.
The crap I hear about Haredi of Kiryas Joel from relatives makes me cringe. We are not talking one or two people WE ARE TALKING ABOUT A WHOLE COMMUNITY! that the surrounding communites can't stomach these people because of the way they conduct themselves.
They are asked to be respectful and mind the quiteness and sanctity of the bedroom communities. THEY IGNORE. They trample once quite streets by using them as commercial conduits to KJ. Town boards refuse to put up signs to keep commercial traffic off of residential streets why?? because the bstards paid of politicians.
Property values have plummeted by tractor trailers/buses running through residential street to KJ. THAT ON TOP of HIGH taxes to support KJ who are assesed at a much lower tax rate.(Monroe Town Board controls tax rate of KJ and Monroe)
THAT IS HOW THE HAREDI LUNATIC FRINGE IS SEEN BY OTHERS. disrespectful, selfish, parasites in the community.
Didn't Hitler "paint" Jews with that brush???
See the problem here??
So no, we righteous Jews CANNOT allow this lunatic fringe to go unnoticed.


God is not amused! By your outrages lies! KJ is a self contained community who pay their fair share of school taxes! And don't benefit of it! the surrounding communities of Monroe-Woodbury School district is the exclusive beneficiary of 'their' taxes this in turn made the area popular, by having a well rated school district, which drives the real estate up up up!, about 75% of residents living in the surrounding areas moved in 'after' KJ was already there for the above reason.

The elephant in the room that creates monstrous traffic conditions is the Woodbury-common mall! The largest in N.Y. State area, which was build years after KJ was already there, That's the elephant in the room which creates traffic and depletes all resources i.e. water sewer roads etc. but don’t pay school taxes.

About the ‘gentiles’?! In your family, who are probably anti-Semites anyhow they will never see reality even if a meteoroid hits them! btw with Jews like you who needs anti-semties anyway.

what you need is a kosher diaper..

With the shape my wife is in, if there's any chance I can do my nightly mitzvah, I'm going to need these.

Come to think of it, they should market it as a "mitzvah aid" for the overweight and out of shape frummies.

YL, it was so good you even hit a troll. cool!

will definitely get back to you for the lyrics for our kosher bandaids, shoelaces, and zippers.

zipora, "fair share" of what, public special ed funding funneled to religious schools via a purposely-zoned school district?


According to NPR about '83% percent' of men in America will be overweight or obese by the year 2020, (Two-thirds, more than 190 million Americans are overweight or obese according to CBS) now that's alot of frummies!

Very good, YL.

Zipora, you're a credit to the Satmar educational system. Baruch Hashem you should be zochur not to get hit by a meteoroid.

Thnx Jeff

Eli, what me messiah? said: bla bla bal ---

Bimbo do I need to answer you to?

Thanks, Jeff, Eli.

This is what happens when closed groups intermarry over and over....
They become crazy!

I actually checked to make sure this wasn't in the parody and satire section. This is just beyond belief. This is absolutely one of the saddest things I've ever seen.

Just curious, are these glasses for men with good vision that don't already wear glasses? The ones that do wear glasses could just not wear their glasses or for the more mochmer, just get the opposite prescription that they need. ie if they are plus they could get minus. so what is so special about these glasses?

BH, the same company makes a face mask for yidden to wear on bycycles so that they dont swallow insects when they ride.

these posts were so good I thought I would just repost them

Finally a solution. Can I have a pair for a creep in my office?

Zipora, you should have gone to public school to learn basic English instead of your KJ schools which suck up our tax dollars. The highest numbers of section 8 in NY State are in NS and KJ. Don't tell me how you pay taxes!

Um, for someone who is near sighted, why not just take *off* your glasses?

Someone will eventually come up with high tech "smart" lenses that selectively block women from view.

Eli, what me messiah? - Your comment at August 06, 2012 at 08:16 AM was LOL!! GREAT!! I'm buying a pair to send to my "rabbit" right now!

Devorah: "Don't tell me how you pay taxes!"
"The highest numbers of section 8 in NY State are in NS and KJ"

Devora – Debora the educated one!, does not know that 60% of Americans have some form of government help, roughly the same number as in NS or KY, There is no crime by concentrating large families in isolated communities, which happens all over the land, section 8 is a government program for the poor who 'rent' apartments! Not for the house 'owners' who pays school taxes! regardless of income No exceptions. Just like all Americans are 'entitled' to free grade school, lunches, libraries, school medical office, parks, trips, therapy, sport actvities, Medicare, SS, college subsidies etc. etc. Although less than 30% of Americans graduate from college! But So are the poor entitled to section 8, last checked it is not a crime not to graduate from college, neither is it a crime to be poor! Or to be of the majority of Americans with poor writing and reading skills.

To the tone of innuendo, poisen and hate in your soul manifested in your comment! I won’t even reply. ps: see your spiritual leader or doc on that, what’s behind it..

YL, that was fantastic.

Abra, htanks!

In Williamsburg:

CHOSSID: But officer, I thought the utility pole was a naked woman wearing only a tank top and shorts, and so I diverted my eyes from this forbidden ervah and didn't see the red light, and because of that I had to then swerve out of the way of the oncoming cars, and that is why I crashed into the mailbox and then the fire hydrant.

POLICE OFFICER: You diverted your eyes from WHAT?

CHOSSID: Ervah - you know - nudity. We are forbidden to see nudity and must divert our eyes from it.

OFFICER: But don't you folks go swimming all together in the nude every day for religious purification?

CHOSSID: Yes, but that's only MEN. We are allowed to see MALE nudity, but we are forbidden to see FEMALE nudity and must divert our eyes from it.

OFFICER: Okay, but the woman you saw was not nude - she was wearing shorts and a tank top, is that right?

CHOSSID: Well, she wasn't wearing anything.

OFFICER: So, she WAS nude?

CHOSSID: No, she wasn't wearing anything because she wasn't a person, she was a utility pole. But yes, I thought I saw a woman in a tank top and shorts, and had to divirt my eyes from the nudity, ervah, because this is forbidden for us, it is nudity, ervah. Farshteist?

OFFICER: Hold on, I'm trying to write this all down. What did you call that? Evru?

CHOSSID: I'm so relieved though, I thought the hydrant was a small child that I had hit. Boruch Hashem it's only a fire hydrant! You see - Hashem rewarded me for my shmiras eiynayim by making sure I didn't kill anyone! Boruch Hashem!!

Cop takes a second look at Chossid and notices something strange about his glasses.

OFFICER: Sir, can you please remove your glasses and hand them to me?

CHOSSID: Surely officer, here they are.

OFFICER: Do you have a permit for wearing distorted lenses?

CHOSSID: Permit? My Rebbe told me to! Do you want a copy of the Kol Korei? We don't need permits. This is halucheh! If the Rebbe said it - it is Toiyreh - our tradition. We must do it for religious reasons. It's as important as our keeping the Sabbath!

OFFICER: I'm giving you a ticket for this.

The next week a large crowd of chassidim gather at the corner to protest that the police are Anti-Semites.

YL - Excellent!!

last checked it is not a crime not to graduate from college, neither is it a crime to be poor! Or to be of the majority of Americans with poor writing and reading skills.

It is not a crime to come from poverty and ignorance. It is a moral crime to cultivate them deliberately.

Posted by: zipora | August 06, 2012 at 03:30 PM
Ignorance isn't an offense. Neither is arrogance. However, ignorance coupled with arrogance is highly offensive.

Zipora,

It's not a crime to be poor or to receive aid from the government or to not go to college.

It IS a crime to work under the table and not pay taxes and not report the income to social security, etc.

You forgot to mention that they brought garbage cans and dirty diapers (the ones with velcro - not the kind with adhesive tape, chos v'sholem!).

zipora - I don't know where you get your statistics from, but they are definitely skewed.

Additionally, I would guess that most Americans who are getting government benefits do not have upwards of 7-10 children and CHOOSE not to work but instead milk the system.

And I would also imagine that included in any number you are giving for "financial assistance" is included unemployment benefits, and college tuition subsidies.

THOSE are not the entitlements which people have a problem with NS or KJ fraudulently milking from the system.

College Tuition subsidies are temporary and only SUPPLEMENT college tuition, which presumably leads to higher employment opportunities and to a better country which produces more. It is an INVESTMENT that the government makes in its citizens.

Unemployment is something which is primarily funded by employers who pay unemployment taxes to the government, which then pays for covering a LIMITED period of time between which a person finds a new JOB.

Section 8 and food stamps on the other hand, those are benefits that are STRICTLY for either the poor, or people who LIE to the state saying that they are poorer than they really are.

I'll give you an example. According to New York State law, if you are married by a member of the clergy (a rabbi) you are considered to be legally married, even without registering that marriage with the State of New York. However, almost all Chassidim and Yeshivish people who apply for Food Stamps and Section 8 who are married according to halachah LIE about their marriage status, in order to receive MORE benefits.

You are NOT entitled to MORE Section 8 and Food Stamps by lying on your forms, just because you do not send your kids to public school, or to college, and therefore do not get the benefits of those subsidies. But you freely lie on forms saying that you are not married, even when you are LEGALLY married, with all kinds of rationalizations in your head. Your community is one of LIARS because this is done on a communal basis.

You also CHEAT the system, by buying houses or apartments, putting them under your uncles or brother-in-law's names, and then claiming to "rent" them from the "homeowner" and getting Section 8 on them. You lie when asked if you are related to the homeowner. And you cheat the system that way. Again - your whole community does this. So on top of being a community of LIARS you are a community of CHEATERS.

So much for being Am Hanivchar, Ohr Legoyim, and Am Kohanim V'goiy Kadosh.

You can give your rationalizations for doing these kinds of things from today to tomorrow, but we all know what it boils down to for you - you think it's COMING to you because you think you are better than everyone else, and you think you are ABOVE the government laws that the rest of us follow. Well, with all the rationalizations, know that one day the shit will hit the fan, and YOU and your community will make one of the BIGGEST Chillul Hashems in history. It's just a matter of time. Hashem who you think you are pleasing will be really happy with you then, fashmearing His name across the world when they look and see that THIS is the Jews - Liars, Cheaters and Thieves. You think He will really buy your excuses then? Think again.

you forgot to mention how many houses are listed in KJ as synagogues and do not pay real estate taxes

"It is not a crime to come from poverty and ignorance. It is a moral crime to cultivate them deliberately."

Jeff, I could not have said it better myself. (And part of my livelihood is writing...LOL). At first I thought this had to be a gag, but no....there's no doubt in my mind that it's real.

But your statement about what is and is not a crime sums up what I find both repugnant and embarrassing about that lifestyle. We have always been called the People of the Book. And along come these people and make ignorance into some sort of virtue.

And (this is what I have told my brother who converted from Modern Orthodoxy to the Frum lifestyle) "I didn't know our great-grandfather- and neither did you- and our father didn't tell us anything about his grandfather. But I seriously doubt that he came from his place of birth in Latvia- be it a city, town or village- and came all the way to the United States so his descendants could re-segregate themselves in some ghetto."

I only hope that your forecast of how quickly this lifestyle collapses is more accurate than mine.

"last checked it is not a crime not to graduate from college, neither is it a crime to be poor! Or to be of the majority of Americans with poor writing and reading skills."

Zipora,

You are correct that it is not a crime not to graduate from college, or be poor.

But it is a crime against your children to raise them unable to function in the world as it exists today.

The only way to a decent job that provides a certain level of compensation and benefits is to have an education that takes one beyond high school, or at least into community college or vo-tech school where they learn a marketable skill or skills.

When the frum community teaches their children (in the United States; I can't speak to other countries) to reject secular education beyond high school, when they teach their children that any formal education beyond high school is either suspect, to be avoided, or just something that the "goyim" and/or the fake jews do, then they are condemning their children to a lifetime of diminished opportunities at best, and poverty at worst.

As I have said before on this forum, I have represented some people you would not let your children anywhere NEAR- but of all the trashbags and scumbags that I have represented, everyone of them wanted a better life for their children than the one they had built for themselves.

Frankly, that is what I find so repugnant about your community. You deliberately raise your children to be ignorant of everything except the Torah- which guarantees them nothing except a lifetime of diminished opportunities at best, and poverty at worst.

I've often said that if a person wants to shorten their life to about three seconds, go into the African jungle, find a tiger, and threaten her cubs....and enjoy your last three seconds on this earth.

Animals protect their children better than the parents in your community.

Think of how many more Israeli police officers will avoid injury....I can't imagine these people have good aim to begin with but their stone throwing ability will be further impeded.

Thanks Eli :)

Wouldn't Absolut and Kettle One do the same thing?

Abra - I just laughed myself into an asthma attack because of your traffic citation satire. It was worth it though!


Ziporah - you are a stunningly good representative of your community. You should spread your wisdom far and wide. Educate the masses!

Thanks No Light!

Btw - are you coming to the FM get together?

Seems like these will put real opticians out of business. These glasses are only necessary for those who have perfect vision. Myopics BarucHashem need only get rid of their existing glasses.
What next? Blurry windshields for machmirim? Retro laser surgery?

btw...this one has got to be a scam. Anyone can stick their own frosted contact paper onto an existing pair of glasses, as the picture seems to be.
btw 2...what do the words below the pic mean?

Mr. Barron, Stop spreading innuendoes and lies on a community of people you have no clues about! Take care on your 'own' monkey business.

It helps if you think of the Haredi thought as a kind of minstrelism. Haredim are like Jewish blackface, they exist to mock and harm the Jewish people. They are among the dumbest, least intellectually capable people on Earth and they're brainwashed with the idea that they're the greatest. Everything that comes out of their mouths is meant to embarass and shame the Jew. They've been conquered and they're far too stupid to figure out how.

Now this comment is very enlightend, intellectual and smart, and your source please?

Wasn't there a story on these esteemed pages a while ago about how some Charedim wear schmattas on their heads to also avoid seeing women? Does anyone remember, or was it within another story?

zipora, by posting a notice of discipline that could relate to who knows how many years ago or for what, you are showing a typical logical fallacy.
instead of responding to arguments that you know make sense and are problematic for you, you make an irrelevant, ad hominem attack on the person presenting them. and you expect others to agree with you as a result.
is that how things work in your world?
(and please don't google me! you don't even want to know about the skeletons in MY messianic closet.)

"is that how things work in your world?

Oy, nebech! Does your rebbe know you're using the Internet? If anyone finds out, none of the kinderlach will make a good shiddach! A shander!

Zippie, your statistics lie. For for facts see:

"In no particular order:

1. There are no single unwed mothers in Kiryas Joel that the public knows about. That does not mean there are no single unwed mothers. There are. But Satmar doesn't rush to advertise this or to get state aid, bexcause of the shame publicity brings. Past that, Stmar children marry at 17 or 18 by decree, not by choice, and any unwed pregnacy can be swiftly turned into a pre-birth marriage. And this is what happens.
2. Kiryas Joel is a homogeneous community. It is so in part because of illegal tactics employed by Satmar to keep it that way. Homogeneous communities usually have lower rates of violent crime. In most societies, violence is saved for the Other, not your cousin or neighbor.
3. Past that, stealing from or injuring community members – or simply deviating from community norms in a small way – can easily lead to expulsion – which itself leads to loss of income, housing, social services and social networks. In other words, the costs of committing crimes against other community members are usually too high to make the crimes worthwhile.
4. But, while these crimes still happen, police are not called except in very rare cases. Crimes and other disputes are handled internally and therefore do not show up in census data or crime statistics. That does not mean these crimes do not happen.
5. Rampant welfare fraud, tax dodges, and other illegal scams permeate haredi society. Kiryas Joel is no exception.
6. And there is the issue of sexual molestation of children and the coverups that go hand in hand with it.
7. Yemenite Jews were held against their will in Kiryas Joel. (That would be kidnapping.)
8. And we also have the issue of teenage kids who do not want to be Satmar hasidim and how those children are treated by Kiryas Joel and Satmar."
