THE PROHIBITION OF SECLUSION WITH A WOMAN THAT IS NOT OUR WIFE

BOOK

ISSUR YICHUD
-
One who gazes lustfully upon the small finger of a married woman, it is as if he has committed adultery with her.- Kallah, Ch. 1

It is forbidden to spend time with a woman that is not our wife, this prohibition is valid whether the woman is single or not. In the Torah this call Yichud. The restrictions of the Yichud prohibition are quite challenging, but it is well worth the efforts. Those who succeed experience real freedom in the area of temptations, wet dreams (night emission of semen), nightmares, sexual purity, and could grow enormously in their Avodat Hashem (Serving G-d). 


This prohibition mainly restricts a man and a woman from being secluded with a woman unless they are married or unless they are very close relatives. Abiding by this Halacha (law) is, however, an essential component in maintaining a Torah lifestyle and Kedushat Yisrael (the holiness of the Jewish People).

The Tzaddik (Righteous) must protect their eyes, to maintain holiness and in the Service of G-d; it is important to stay away from immodestly dressed women; be watchful of one's eyes, not to look at any scene that arouses sensuality. It is forbidden for a G-dly man to enjoy the beauty of a woman that is not his wife. Stay away from sensual pictures, sensual videos, sensual images, etc.
