Chareidim freaking out because a lady will replace Alexander Hamilton on the 10.00 bill
Police are clearing lower Manhattan for a huge rally against the not-tznisdik proposal to put a picture of a lady on the $10.00 bill.
Chareidim have already torn all pictures of women from their respective newspapers and magazines. Some even remove the lady's name , and there is talk of removing all references to women from the entire Torah, especially the part where Yaakov kissed Ruchel!
So this is a huge setback for them... they don't even want to talk about the possibility of Hillary Clinton becoming President .....
Rabbonim are trying to convince the Lakewood Roshei Yeshivas to close the Lakewood Yeshivah so they can attend this mass protest, since it is an inyan of "Yehereg V'al Yaavor"
In a show of achdus, both Bobover Rebbes will attend. Both Satmar Rebbes will also attend providing that they burn the Israeli flag for good measure.
The U.S. Treasury announced on Wednesday that beginning in 2020, a woman’s face will replace Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill.
Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said he’s looking for public input on which female historical figure should become the first to appear on U.S. paper currency for the first time in 119 years.
Hamilton will remain either on the bill’s reverse side or in a separate series while the 1.9 billion $10 bills in circulation are likely to last another 10 years.
No woman has appeared on a new currency since Martha Washington on a $1 silver note until 1896. Pocahontas was the first female, appearing on the $20 note beginning in 1865.
