Gym Attire VS Hasidic Garb...

Here is an interesting article that discusses how a gym and a Hassidic synagogue within Montreal are at odds. The Parke Avenue YMCA in Montreal which neighbors the Yetev Lev synagogue (which also houses a Yeshiva), is an eye sore to the Hasidic community. It would prefer not to see women in aerobic gear. They Y has tried to resolve the issue by frosting the windows. Y members are not happy with this and have sought petitions on the right to look out and be viewed. Needless to say this has not brought these communities closer together.

If the Yeshiva doesn't want it's students to have their minds corrupted by the sight of sweaty yuppies doing Tai Chi, they need to fost their own damn windows.
Of course, being that it's Satmar, they probably just want to throw rocks.
