Rated 'H' for Haredi
Reuters tells us about new films made for Haredim, the lastest being called "The Cry of the Dead". The article explains what this is:
There are still limitations for haredi movie-makers. Women are not allowed to be shown due to chastity laws, and abusive language, as well as violence, is prohibited.
"Within these boundaries, everything else is open and we have a lot of free rein," said Ariel Cohen, "Cry of the Dead's" director.
After other pro-film comments, the article continues:
But some in the haredi community have voiced worries the new culture could prove damaging for their traditional way of life.
"Even if the films are done with the right intentions, there is a danger that allowing our children to watch films will make such mediums more acceptable and could lead to sinning," said a leading haredi rabbi and educator, who declined to be identified.
"Family life will also be in danger as people start to watch films. The centre of haredi life is the Book," he said.
Commenters: Do you agree with this slippery slope philosophy or not?
