Is it OK as per Halacha to go through the new TSA scanners where they see you as if you are naked?

    @jutky - Why is it any different for a man to be seen naked than a woman in respect to halacha? – Adam Mosheh Jun 10 '12 at 22:09
  • @AdamMosheh there is no hirurim problem for somebody looking at naked man. – jutky Jun 11 '12 at 11:40

    @jutky Tell that to a woman. – Double AA Jul 27 '12 at 15:59
  • They don't actually see you naked. The machine detects metal and it shows up on a standard picture. Last I checked, machines don't have hirhurim (not yet, anyway). – DonielF May 8 '17 at 15:05

Rav Moshe Shternbuch reportedly sees no problem with it.

    Just to add my own experience: Rabbi Hershel Welcher, president of the Vaad HaRabbonim of Queens, was asked this question in front of his shul and said he didn't see the problem. – Shalom Nov 24 '10 at 3:56
