Pashkevil of the Day


the pashkevil makes some interesting points. It talks about nude and skin colored tights and stockings being prohibited and causing the shechina to leave us, yet it has been spreading among us. As well, manufacturers are now using thinner threads so you cannot rely on the listed denier measurement. One must ensure that the stockings completely block out any skin and skin color from being visible, and that is not a chumra but is the basic halacha. The warning is also for store owners selling stockings, not just the women buying them.
And the final interesting part, at the bottom of the poster, says that the seminaries are ignoring the issue. It says the seminaries are forcing the students to wear specifically skin-colored stockings and claiming that the black stockings are immodest. This is the opposite of intellect, the opposite of logic and the opposite of Torah.

  4. What about the fact that the pashkevil is green. That's the most interesting part to me. Who knows what such a breach in the minhag yisrael will lead to!

  6. I'm sorry, I live in a community where women don't even *wear* stockings (my wife says it's the reason she made aliyah :-) ), and this just strikes me as the product of a bunch of men (obviously not the signatories, but the people who made it) who can't stop *thinking* about womens' bodies. Somehow the rest of us manage to get through the day surrounded by women who are a lot less modest than Beis Yaakov girls with the wrong-colored stockings, and yet these exemplars of frumkeit can't. Funny thing there.

    The Satmar Rebbe used to actually get the samples of stockings before they were marketed to his chassidim, checking the thread count and pulling them over his arm. That's more than whatever problem these people have and borders on mental illness.

  7. No protests about the girls in tight skirts? No protests about the girls in completely Halachically Assur clothing? No ? All quiet here in Rafi-ville. Issurim are fine. Chumros are crazy.
