Orthodox newspapers in NYC REFUSE to publish pictures of Jewish women running for political office on religious grounds - as candidates turn to social media to get their faces seen

The first Orthodox Jewish woman to run for a New York City Council seat from her Brooklyn district has been forced to run campaign ads without her image in local newspapers that won’t print images of women.

Amber Adler, 37, is a candidate in the June 22 primary for a city council seat representing District 48, an area that encompasses heavily Orthodox enclaves of Borough Park and Midwood in southern Brooklyn.

But unlike men in her position who run for office, Adler's face will not appear in local Orthodox Jewish newspapers in the area because pictures of women have been banned on religious grounds.
