Mixed seating


Rabbi Gideon Weitzman

4 Sivan 5763
There is a certain "Modern Orthodox" youth movement having a concert . The concert is mixed seating but they have a section which is separate seating for people who will not sit in the mixed section. Is it a Chilul Hashem for me to go with my wife and sit in the separate seating section? Kol tuv
Shalom U'Vracha If you sit in the separate section I do not see any problem with going to such a concert even though there are people there who sit together. The fact that you go does not support their actions in the same way as sitting on the subway with people who are sitting mixed does not condone their actions. Kol Tuv
