Public Displays of Affection
I am not Jewish, but I have close Orthodox Jewish friends. I always thought Orthodox Jews are not supposed to engage in public displays of affection. At least that’s what my close Orthodox friend says. Yet I see it all the time. I see public displays of affection among all ages of Orthodox, ranging from longtime married couples to young people who are just dating each other and are uncertain if they will marry. How is that possible? My religion opposes public displays of affection and adherents take it quite seriously.
