    It's the law

    And it’s not just any law – it’s the essence of a Bas Yisroel. Many girls and women view Tznius the same way they view Chitas , Rambam and Mivtzoim – because they are encouraged to learn Chitas and Rambam with more enthusiasm then they are taught to be Tzniusdig. Tznius has to be our number one priority.

    Ignorant?!?

    The vast majority of girls who are dressed ‘immodestly’ in crown heights are very aware of the laws of tznius – they have usually grown up lubuvitch homes and gone to lubuvitch schools. So while it is very benevolent of you to blame the “serious breakdown in observance of standards of modesty…to ignorance”, it is doubtful.
    That many girls simply do not care is much more likely. That’s often the result of overly controlling parents and teachers who leave kids with a bitter taste towards halacha in general.

    I really dont think a poster campaign will be enough to make the kind of change that is needed in our community now. we are in a real crisis with women walking around completley not tznius. How will this help??? Its not ignorance – they all know its wrong. But they do it anyways, in complete unabashed disregard for halacha and what the Rebbe would want. its an embarrasment!

    I don’t think this “loud” poster encourages women or girls to be tznius. Seeing that people have mashpiim and are in contact with them may help a lot more. Seeing that people go to shiurim (not lectures about tznius,, but chassidus lectures about G-d, may help more.Being friendly with Jews instead of looking down on how people are dressed may help more.Also. siyata dishmaya.

    problem

    The problem in our community is that all the schools choose to accept kids from families where the parents do not abide by the laws of tznius. We need rules like in other neighhorhoods, that if a mother of a child is seen improperly dressed, the child CANNOT BE IN SCHOOL.
    that is the only way. there has to be pressure from the community that we as a whole do not accept it.

    I for one am really surprised at all the negativity from these comments. Whatever happened to being positive and seeing the good in people? That’s the only way to reach them….

    Those skimpy, short denim skirts are horrible! Walk on Kingston any day and every single girl is wearing one, almost like a uniform. Come on!

    What is wrong with all you people. Stop judging others and look at yourself. Dont judge people by what they look like on the outside.

    I agree with you, it is the husband’s fault and it almost looks like they enjoy it when these women get attention from other men. Be careful what you wish for!! A smart husband will compliment his wife when she is dressed eidel and tznius.

    good luck with this

    the schools hold the key

    All parents living in this neighborhood need our schools. They want their kids in our schools. If the schools would make the parents sign a contract regarding their own behavior and act upon seeing a parent disobey the required tzinus standard it would have an effect. No parent would risk having their child expelled from school because they, the parent did not behave properly. The only way we can rectify the problem is by having the schools cooperate. It has woked in other neighborhoods and it can work here,too. But the schools administratoirs have to consistent and work together. I… Read more »
