Mimi...I just wonder what reaction there would have been from Queen Salome
Alexandra..Shlomzion Hamalka...the Queen who ruled the Jews for 45 years
,and was of the line of the Maccabees ,if someone had come along and told
her to go upstairs and stay out of sight!!!! Cornel

To Cornel and all other "Czernowitzers": The renovated synagogue in which
Rabbi Glissenshtein holds services, has two sections; downstairs for men and
upstairs for women, the women can look down and see the praying men and the
rabbi, the men, even if they turn around and look up, cannot see the women.
Because men are so easily distracted, this is properly so.
