'Sinner' singer given 39 lashes by rabbis
Punishment for performance in front of "mixed audience."
By Jerusalem Post Staff
A singer who performed in front of a "mixed
audience" of men and women was lashed 39 times to make him
"repent," after a ruling by a self-described rabbinic
court on Wednesday.
In a video clip of the court posted on the Shofar Web site, Ben
Zion said that those who make others sin (mahtiei rabim), such as
artists who make men and women attend performances or dance
together, have no place in the world to come.
