"Kavod Ha'adam," State of Israel v. Guta, High Court of Justice of Israel, cited in Melissa Weintraub, "Kvod Ha-Briot"
The meaning of kavod ha-adam [human dignity] is to not degrade and debase the image of God in the human being. Not every sort of harm to human dignity is included in the framework of the Basic law of human dignity and freedom. For example, [the law does not preclude] wounding the honor of an esteemed person, for whom it is fitting, according to his status, to sit only with others of his status and not with common people…Such harm is not considered degrading and debasing of the divine image, and it is not included in the framework of the basic law of human dignity and freedom. The halakhah adopts more strictness in relation to the sort of harm in which there is degradation and debasement of the divine image – for example, conducting a strip search in which someone's clothing is removed publicly. Furthermore, [Jewish tradition] finds that it is preferable not to humiliate or degrade someone publicly even if he has transgressed a rabbinic prohibition and it is well known publicly, and some say even if he has transgressed a Biblical prohibition.
