Notification regarding Gatherings of Jews with Jewesses

BS"D                  A  NOTICE  AND  WARNING   FOR  OUR  HOLY  NATION !
This is from our great and righteous Rabbis, the teachers and the giants of our generation and the elderly Rabbis and houses of judgment of both the Sephardim and Ashkenazim. Moral ethics and modesty is the foundation for the life of the Nation of Israel, from generation to generation, and our Nation was glorified and lauded for these virtues, in opposition to, and as an example for the gentiles and nations of the world. The learned wise men, may there memory be for a blessing, greatly warned us to guard and supervise the prohibition of social mixing of men and women in every event and circumstance, wherever it may be, both in gatherings of rejoicing and the opposite. They often enacted new guidelines to repair the breaches of their generations. This was in order that, we should never transgress the set boundaries of modesty and holiness and in order that we should guard ourselves from every evil thing.   Alas, because of our many sins and iniquities, we have heard and seen that there are gatherings of people who are too lenient in this serious prohibition especially during times of joyous religious ceremonies in which men and women get together to feast in one room, and they overturn the commandment of rejoicing with the bride and groom into the transgression of impure thoughts and indecency in moral ethics and modesty,  May Hashem have mercy on us! According to Jewish Iaw we can not make the blessing that "The Joy is in Hashem's palace" where there are men and women in the same room.  Because of these situations we see the obligation to notify everyone publicly - to start now to apply the knowledge of the sages following their wise advice, in order to uphold our Holy Torah and in order that we should separate ourselves from all of its prohibitions. According to what we already clarified here, regarding the seriousness of this thing by the words of our holy Rabbis, the masters of the Jewish Code of Law and the rest of the Halachic authorities that a holy obligation rests upon us to supervise in wedding feasts and in all other gatherings where men and women congregate, that men and women should never eat together in one room. There should be a designated room for the men and a separate one designated for the women, preferably with separate entrances. This applies of course, to the Holy Shabbat day, Festivals and all other weekday events. And Holy Israel shall strive with all of their might to uphold all of the above and stay within the boundaries of modesty and holiness and strengthen Daat Moshe and Yehudit.  In the merit of giving merit to the Jewish People, we shall merit the complete redemption and salvation quickly in our days, Amen!

 How can one not comply after seeing so many of our great sages (looking at the array of signatures) going out to strengthen the fences of modesty and holiness which puts upon us the great and holy obligation to repent in all of the above and to strengthen our own obligations to follow faithfully their guidelines, and to be careful to protect and preserve the "gederim" or fences of our Jewish Law ( and the Laws of Modesty) with greater strictness, and with greater vigilance.  It is proper and meritorious to make conscious efforts to be careful about all of this for the sake of the honor of His Blessed Name, and especially today when indecency has increased in a shocking and terrible way. May Hashem atone for us, with His Mercy.
 Nissan, 5710,    The Holy City of Jerusalem!
