About That Seventh Commandment...

So much for the seventh commandment — you know, the one that forbids adultery.

Shaindy.com, which that caters to Orthodox Jews seeking extramarital liaisons, launched on March 19 — and has since attracted a reported 350 people willing pay the site’s $99 registration fee. According to an article in Sunday’s New York Post, the site was the brainchild of a Midwood, Brooklyn-based Modern Orthodox man, who identifies himself as only “Jerry,” and who “says he got the idea from Hasids he met in chat rooms seeking adulterous action.”

The site’s typo-filled homepage beckons would-be members with decidedly immodest photos and promises of privacy:

Featured profiles include that of Hasidic “ChanieS,” partial to “sex, books, massages,” and “Dinah,” a Satmar who, apparently bored with her marriage, is looking for a man with “stamina, passion and muscles.”

Shaindy.com’s motto: A Jew Can Have Fun Too.
