A Jerusalem participant in the No Pants event: YourJewishnews.com

The annual No Pants Subway Ride event had some unique participants this past Sunday: Orthodox Jews in Jerusalem. The event, which began in New York City in 2002 is, according to the group that started it, “an international celebration of silliness, with dozens of cities around the world participating each year. The idea behind No Pants is simple: Random passengers board a subway car at separate stops in the middle of winter without pants.”

The event website boasts: “over 4,000 people participate in New York with tens of thousands more participating in 60 cities all over the world.”

    It is false reporting to call the people in this article “Orthodox Jerusalemites”. Call them what they are. Either people new to Judaism that do not respect their own inherent honor as a religius Jew, or Americans who have brought this type of silly behavior, that does not suit someone orthodox in Israel, to the religious culture in Israel. Either way, they are not born and bred “orthodox Jerusalemites” and disgrace the honor of the true carriers of that name.
