Jewish women 'banned' from University

ULTRA-orthodox Jewish rabbis in New York have issued a worldwide ban on women going to university.

The Independent said the strict Satmar sect warned that university education for women was "dangerous”.

Written in Yiddish, the decree warns: "It has lately become the new trend that girls and married women are pursuing degrees in special education. And so we'd like to let their parents know that it is against the Torah.”

Ultra-orthodox Jews follow traditional Judaism and discourage interaction with the modern or secular world.
