Haredi politician accused of hypocrisy over bathing suit photos

Outraged gender equality advocates in Beit Shemesh have raised charges of hypocrisy over images of a local ultra-Orthodox politician lounging near scantily clad women in Eilat that are being circulated on social networks.

The photos of Moshe Montag – a city councilor from the Degel Hatorah Party and a senior member of the administration of Mayor Moshe Abutbul (Shas) – were posted on Facebook Tuesday night and immediately generated an uproar among opponents of the municipality’s tolerance of signs demanding modest dress hung by religious extremists around the town.

Mixed gender swimming is forbidden by the ultra-Orthodox.
