Rabbis tell haredi girls not to pursue higher education

Several thousand haredi high-school girls gathered at the Jerusalem Arena on Tuesday to be told by leading rabbis from the Council of Torah Sages of the Degel Hatorah movement that they are forbidden from pursuing higher education.

Blessings and messages against higher education were read to the school pupils by Rabbi Aharon Leib Shteinman, the spiritual leader of the non-hassidic Ashkenazi haredi community, as well as by two other senior haredi leaders, Rabbi Haim Kanievsky and Rabbi Gershon Edelstein.
