 Ultra-Orthodox website to fine women for blurry faces in photo

Ultra-Orthodox news site Behadrei Haredim has agreed to apologize and compensate for blurring women's faces in a post last year. This is a photograph taken during a meeting between President Yitzhak Herzog and representatives of the reformist and conservative movements, as well as with the Women of the Wall activist group. The site posted photos of Rakefet Ginsberg, Anna Kislansky, Orly Erez-Likhovsky, Yohi Rappeport and Tamar Gottlieb with blurry faces. This was in line with the website's policy of refraining from posting images of women as it is against Jewish modesty laws. As a result, a civil lawsuit was filed against the portal earlier this year through the Israel Religious Action Center (IRAC). The news site was accused of discrimination, negligence, defamation and violation of privacy.
