"Jewish Woman? You Are the King's Daughter!" A campaign poster warning Jewish women against going out with Arab men or other gentiles.

Another case: “About a month and a half ago, I ran into a story with a married Haredi woman, member of a distinguished Chassidic court in Jerusalem, who was about to move in with an Arab in the Beit Chanina neighborhood. Miraculously, I reached her, picked her up in my car, and in half an hour she was back with her husband. I managed to convince her.”

And another: “A month ago, there was a wedding in the town of Modi’in Illit, where the bride had been in a relationship with an Arab before, and after we took care of her, in an indirect way, she got out of it and, like I said, was marrying a God fearing Jew.”

After these women are helped out of their mixed relationships, they receive help in returning to the life they had fled. There are professionals in the Haredi community who offer them psychological help.

“As far as memory serves,” M says, “I’ve dealt with more than 900 girls who became entangled with Arab and Druze men, and 250 of them have come back.”

  1. They are not only sheltered, but also grow up with the knowledge that they'll have to marry a man they hardly know, who doesn't work for a living, spends his time in yeshiva, doesn't care for or about her needs, exploits them, and make them bear a dozen kids, whether they want it or not. Of course, it's difficult for them to resist guys who pretend he loves them above all and shower them with gifts and attention. The Haredi should stop hiding from themselves the harm they're doing to themselves and Judaism in general with their rigid refusal to let young men out of the yeshiva and unable to be good husbands to their wives. Sex doesn't a relationship make: Jewish men must be good companions to Jewish women.

  2. David, take a chill pill and reread my post. Saying that a woman can "never wash off the stench" of having a relationship with an Arab man is racist, as it implies that ALL Arab men stink, and sexist, as it implies that once a woman has been sexually active, t'shuva is never possible for her. By contrast, there is nothing antisemite in my claim that the Haredi's lifestyle imposed by their rabbis is both rigid and conducive of rebellion, especially among young women. All Jews aren't "Haredi", thanks Hashem

  3. Many thousands of young Israeli women living in Arab villages with Arab lovers, and yet if an Israeli man and an Arab woman became sexual, she would be killed by her close male relatives. It’s time to talk about “honor” killings and the sexual dynamics of the Arab/Israeli conflict. Peace begins at home. How can we make peace with people who have not yet made peace with their own sisters, mothers and daughters? Please have a look at my website peacecircle.org.

  5. If this is the case there are a significant number of Jewish persons living in P.A. areas. There are also Samaritans as well as Arabs of Jewish origin. It seems to me that P.A. officials remain for whatever money that they can obtain from other countries. Therefore this whole dispute is becoming a nonsense for the benefit of politicians.

  6. It has always been a problem, Jewish women and Arab men. The Arabs know how to woe and the girls fall for it, it is attractive and it is lovely and very very romantic. And then the reality kicks in when she joins the family as a wife….disaster does not describe it.

  7. Many of the Jewish men in Israel should not fool around but be serious with the girls they date. If they have no marriage intentions, they should say so and not waste the girls time and involve her emotions. They flip from flower to flower and this is not the Jewish way. This could be one reason that the single Jewish girls are fed up and are looking for stability and commitment, of course with the wrong type who bluff them with words and material things..

  10. Amazing, not one word in the article about what the headline claimed. Of course all the posters can now bash chareidim without thinking about how biased the JP is against chareidim.

  11. Take blood fingerprints computerize facial features take DNA….then deport from Israel…if found again in Israel…ten years hard labor prison…crime…for no new dating or marrying a Jewish girl in Israel….

  12. This girls are mental horny idiots. The strickt families made this stupid girls an easy pray. They didn't know, what they getting themselves in. Hope each of this stupid cows get what they deserve. I am not surpirsed of that. KIds in charedy families are so asocial, that they interested in anything, which not a part of their charedy life. I watch bunch of this kids every day. They go to Charedy men school, through our staircase near my home. You can see this road through someones yard is like adventure for them. Today I saw some buldores digging the land and 2 charedy boys almost jumped in the whole, to see what is happening. I think they are so out of real world, that anything whats not a part of their rutin world, like something exiting. There where gilr too, but she didn't came closer just watched from the far. Can you see this girl became older and watch from the fare, this interesting forbidden man? Add to it ragging hormons and uknowladge, that they will be married to some unknown man, who they probably not even like, and you get this time bomb. This girls are stupid, because they live not in real world, but in fantasy. But I can bet after they marry Arab, they would find out, they got in worse situation, than they where at home. But at home they have loving parents, but in Arabs family, they would have just enemies and nobody else to help.

  13. So now Jewish women realize the valuless of haredi men who do not serve their country are not men at all causing the women to the arms of the pagan arabs instead. When will the rabbi’s learn that their selfishness is destroying Judaism.

  14. So much racism and you think you are worthy of more than the world’s disgust? It is a wonderful thing your youth are learning that humans are humans, leaving behind re racism that the civilised world left 50+ years ago. The only thing you leaned from Hitler was tactics – he sounded just like you do.
