Barclays Center Offers Separate Men’s And Women’s Seating

Several hundred seats are being set aside so that Jewish men and women can sit in separate areas — as is custom — at a Feb. 28 concert by violinist Itzhak Perlman. The night features Jewish music and cantor Yitzchak Meir Helfgot. The tickets for the aisle-divided section cost $50. The remaining seats are open to anyone else.

The new arena will also augment its regular Avenue K kosher food service that night with entrees from Abigael’s, a kosher restaurant in Manhattan.

The home of the Brooklyn Nets is courting a new crowd.

In what is believed to be a first for a major sports and entertainment venue, Barclays Center is offering gender-divided seating for ultra-Orthodox Jews at a public event.
