    I don’t usually go to these things but I am so glad that I did! Mrs Shapiro was so real, classy, humorous and she had the entire audience fully engaged. she made the topic of tzniyus, usually one that I, and many others, don’t want to hear about, beautiful and meaningful. it really changed my perspective and I hope that I can take her message and made some real changes. The questions and answer sessions was also wonderful and answered many important questions. every detail was so beautifully presented, down to the gift bags. thank you to all the organizers… Read more »

    Watched the video. Definitely good points! Just don’t like the black and white nature of this– not black and white Halacha– if everything was black and white like prohibition against eating pork– there wouldn’t be so much violations either. Don’t agree with adding to prohibitions– we already saw the danger when Chava added the prohibition against touching the apple.

    We’re not ADDING to halacha. We make GATES around halachos (as the rabbis have always done) because when something is valuable, we WANT to make sure that we don’t fall in this area. So since halacha says that the elbows have to be covered, the women decide NOT TO ENGAGE IN ACTIVITIES THAT will expose the elbows (which would breach halacha). so no new halachos were added, gates were just put into place.

    Obviously I got that point. The nature/tone of the speeches suggested it was THE halacha, rather than a strigency. My point still stands. Whoever keeps the Halacha and not the stringency is still a religious Jew.

    I am so pleased to see this. I have been working with some community leaders toward making a similar event:
    “Men’s Celebration of Masculinity”

    Mrs. Schapiro was so empowering! She changed my perspective tremendously and my marriage has already felt the benefits. i brought up some points with my husband and we made a very big positive hachlata together…..

    The speaker was so poised and delivered the message so powerfully. Thank you Mrs. Schapiro. It was so down to earth and not preachy
    The Q and A session changed my life too. Pity so many had left already…. it was spot-on

    Thank you for posting this. I was at the event and I enjoyed immensely. I’m excited to be able to watch it again as there were a lot of very beautiful concepts given over. I really enjoyed the speaker. She had a lot to offer and she presented it with clarity, with passion and yet it was delivered in a gentle way. Who is she (maiden name)?

    I think in the questions and answers sessions this question was brought up about adding. And it was explained that the rabbis are usually the ones to create fences for Halacha (that then become Halacha ) but with tzniyus, the refined women of the times had this power to make the fences (which became Halacha). This concept is in the mishna so it’s not just something that chabad or certain people took on recently. I don’t know if I’m coming across clearly. Perhaps col should have the speaker or one of the other panelists to explain it here for your… Read more »

    the toichen of the speech was actually put together by Rabbi Zirkind a”h, mrs. sara morozow and mrs chani wolf. (as was originally presented to the shluchos at the kinus). Mrs shapiro did a remarkable job presenting it .

    So are you suggesting that one who keeps the ACTUAL Halacha and not the stringency isn’t a religious Jew?

    I don’t think anyone will judge anyone as to who is a ‘religious’ jew or not. we are all works in progress. we all strive to improve each day, never remaining stagnant in our observances. if we learned something new, then hopefully we can implement some or all of what we have learned, if not today, then next week, next year. i didnt follow this thread all way through but from what i understand, mishna is considered torah and yes, it would be considered halacha. but if one talks loshon hara and one is not so careful with maaser, we… Read more »

    No one is judging or labeling. We each have areas in which we can grow and improve and it is not for anyone to decide who is considered “Frum enough”. The Rebbe once told Mr. Chase at Dollars (when he asked if he could be considered a Chosid despite his lack of Chassidic appearance, “If a Jew endeavors to take a FURTHER STEP in the service of G-d, I am proud to consider him my Chosid.” It’s about which direction we are heading. At the same time, it is important to know the truth so that we know what we… Read more »

    Wonderful evening

    Mrs Schapiro was so inspiring. She spoke so clearly and eloquently, was a pleasure to listen to, and from looking around the room seeing people so engaged, and then from the comments here, it seems like everyone felt the same.

    Really enjoyed the evening! The speaker was passionate, relatable and a natural. I really liked the PowerPoint too (even though it wasn’t working so well) it helped bring things down. How come it’s not part of the video?
