Ich bin a Shulchan Aruch Yid

The Rebbe would often say. I say what I mean.So often we try to say our own pshetelech in interpreting what the Rebbe said.Like everything else in our lives there are halachos that apply to them.So too in the area of tzniyus there are halachos thst apply.As a Lubavitcher we should follow the halachos that are applicable from a Chasidic Rav ad paskened by Shulchan Aruch.The Rebbe has said that he is a Shulchan Aruch Yid and anyone who doesn’t follow Shulchan Aruch has no shychus to him. Let’s stop fooling ourselves that we can be lax in halachod of… Read more »

Rabbi Chaim Jacobs Scotland I fully encourage and endorse this most important campaign. No greater channel to bring brochos to all the family and avoid tragedy than to ‘Cover Up’. We as chassisidim of the Rebbe must set the example to the world. We all believe Moshiach is coming any moment so let us make sure all dresses cover the knee when seated and cover up elsewhere too. How embarassed one would be if Moshiach came and one had to run home to get changed!!!?? This what the Rebbe meant about Boruch Habo Melech Hamoshiach. If Moshiach arrives at our… Read more »

When will sefer Kvuda Bas Melech on the halachos of Tznius (published with the haskamos of the major halachic authorities and including the rabonim of Lubavitch) be reprinted?

So you are being pressured by your peers, so just tell them to stop.

Peer Pressure

Peer Pressure

Peer pressure as how to dress has a tremendous influence on me.This article will fortify me be strong and stick to the rules of tzniyus dress and be proud and as the Rebbe said
‘The glory of a princess comes from within’ (Tehillim 45:14) is often quoted. The Torah describes the Jewish woman as ‘glory’ and ‘princess’, but requires this should express itself in a manner of ‘inwardness’, or tznius.

Answer to #12

I do not know the exact source. I DO know that there is NOsource to have it exposed.My wife and daughters BH all dress according to the prevalent halachos of tzniyus.They all look beautiful and fashionable and not at all perceived as extreme.They have self respect for themselves and others. They also bring kavod to their Rebbe and Lubavitch.

A woman must cover the whole of her main body (the torso). She must, therefore cover whatever is halachically (according to law) not considered to be part of the neck. At the front, the neck ends just above the collar-bones; the collar bones form the frontal uppermost part of the torso. As the collar-bones are part of the main body, they must be properly covered, in line with all other parts of the main body. At the center of this frontal area, the neck extends slightly downwards between the collar-bones in a small v-shaped dip. This is due to the… Read more »

Positive and Dignified

Positive and Dignified

The Rebbe writes about Tznius in a positive and dignified way.
Immediately, self-righteous people turn his words into to hostility. Chesed is turned into Gevurah.
The Rebbe is giving us the goal and the tone – we have to develop how the Rebbe’s ideas will be presented in a dignified way that will reach the soul – not in a judgmental way that will repel women and girls and encourage them to see how far they can deviate from the Halacha.
