Can a Jewish man wear shorts while playing football or must he wear tights under short for hides his skin? We know Jewish man should wear under knee. But football short above knee. So in football he must cover knee? Or he can play with shorts with no cover knee?

  • There is no reason in the world that a Jewish man cannot play football wearing shorts.

  • @DoubleAA I was once in Gateshead shul and the (old) rov stood up and he said, "Summer is coming, and the yetzer ha'ra says, 'Go to the park and play cricket!''" So I think if that was the yetzer ha'ra today, we'd be doing pretty good.
