Women were not permitted to attend Sunday's meeting at Citi Field. However, it was broadcast live to audiences of women in schools and event halls in ultra-Orthodox neighborhoods. The event garnered so much interest that organizers rented the nearby Arthur Ashe Stadium for the overflow crowd.
A spokesman for the event's organizers says they're concerned about Internet pornography. He says they also worry that the lure of social media can limit human interaction, reading and study.
A group urging for more support for child sexual abuse victims inside the close-knit community held a counter-protest outside the stadium.
