Marit ayin

Marit ayin (or maris ayin, Hebrew: מראית עין‎, "appearance to the eye"), is a concept in halakha (Jewish law). It is considered to be an important concept as it can lead to the prohibition of certain acts, dependent on circumstances, that might otherwise be permitted.

Marit ayin can be defined as:

Avoiding doing something that may raise suspicion that one violated halacha, or that someone may misinterpret, thus causing him to violate halacha.[1]
