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

  • What do you think could be a problem (until you a woman).

    @jutky - Why is it any different for a man to be seen naked than a woman in respect to halacha? Jun 10, 2012 at 22:09
  • @AdamMosheh there is no hirurim problem for somebody looking at naked man.

  • 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).

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.
