Beneath the Surface
A Deeper Look at Modesty
Maybe you've noticed women on campus or in the workplace covering up more than usual, wearing long skirts for example, or shirts with sleeves that cover the elbows.
What is that all about? Is it a fashion statement? A religious thing? Or some post-modern feminist trend?
Based on the lecture "The Concept of Modesty" by Rabbi Zev Leff.
All of the honor of the daughter of the King is within. (Tehillim/Psalms 45:14)
(G-d) tells you, man, what He requires of you, but to do justice, love kindness and walk modestly with your G-d. (Micha 6:8)
...And with the modest ones lies wisdom. (Mishlei/Proverbs 11:2)
