    What Torah learning does for a man, tznius does for a woman. This is our protection. I’m very proud of this school. May they be an example to all schools.

    סתם להאיר, I don’t believe the queen herself ever wears pants (besides horseback riding of course)

    “Talking too much about tznius also infringes on Tznius.” Perhaps the lesson in the queens response.

    Amazing!!!

    It is so refreshing to see a school that not only cares about good academics but puts a strong emphasis on tznius!
    We need to be proud of our heritage and not waiver and feel the need to copy others. We are the children of the KING and should always dress and behave as royalty.

    you say talking too much is also not tznius.. we are guilty of talking too late. But that does not mean we are to simply accept the unacceptable. Here is a beautiful lesson from a goy: ____________________________________ Muhammed Ali’s advice to his daughters… An incident transpired when Muhammad Ali’s daughters arrived at his home wearing clothes that were quite revealing. Here is the story as told by one of his daughters: “When we finally arrived, the chauffeur escorted my younger sister, Laila, and me up to my father’s suite. As usual, he was hiding behind the door waiting to scare… Read more »

    What smart teachers and principal to give this lesson to the girls. I’m sure other schools will discuss this as well.

    My son is in their preschool and the legendary machaneches mrs Raziel Wolvovsky infuses him with a warmth for yidishkeit that makes me cry.

    Why must we get preachy with each other when it comes to this topic?

    A quick Google of “Queen trousers” reveals that your statement is totally baseless. Perhaps in the future you’ll spend just a few seconds doing research before making a public statement.

    Thank you

    Beis Yaakov ohel sara school is my kid’s second home. the teachers give off a mothers love and care, and between classmates the respect and a best sister/cousin/friend kind of relationship is amazing to watch.

    AWESOME!!!!!!!

    The Queen does wear trousers, but only on rare occasions.

    Until 1970 the Queen only wore trousers in private. For public affairs she wore formal dresses, but as the fashions changed so drasticly, she felt forced to go with the tide… But she still mostly wears skirts or dresses for formal occasions.

    Bottom line is , if everyone would recognize that they are hosting a precious holy soul..they would dress appropriately and respectfully.

    the queen is always tznius

    impressive!
    Guest
    impressive!

    Weather or not the Queen is tznius is not the whole point of what this amazing school had done. They have brought a musar haskel to their students that if people from the umos haolam can understand that royalty should dress and act diffrent how can we. .. children of Hashem…children of the king of all kings for one moment forget who we are…we must always hold ourselves both in our actions and dress as royalty and be proud of who we are. I wish other schools would stress this important message to their students.

    Whatever the case, it’s on very rare occasions, and to find a photo of her in trousers is especially rare.

    such a good message!

    My 2 daughters go to this school. Not only do they love it but I do also.
    Everyone there is so kind and caring. All the staff members care about each and everyone of the students on a level that I have never seen in any other school. The girls learn so much and are also infused with a love of yidishkeit. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants their girls to receive a solid education as well as coming out with midos, derech eretz and yiras shomayim.

    Very interesting

    Very interesting

    The message that they are trying to show is very powerful. I’ve never seen a school who would take tznius so seriously! You could learn a lot. I’m very impressed

    Accept

    I work in that school and I know that they are very careful to accept only girls who are tznius, chassidish and have derech eretz. That makes a big difference and a pleasure to work there !
