In light of the seemingly lack of achdus amongst klal yisroel, I propose we try to increase a feeling of unity by noticing and making mention of what we admire about one another (group). So, I’ll start. I really admire the sense of tznius that exists in the chassidishe community (generalization). Down to the fine point of having seams sewn on stockings, I really find this admirable.August 2, 2011 3:17 am at 3:17 am #793298shlishiMember
The Sefardim have a strong sense of Kovod HaRav and they will listen and follow the instructions of their rabbis to a very extreme extent.August 2, 2011 3:49 am at 3:49 am #793299WIYMember
The Sfardim respect their Shul and Tefillah and do not speak in Shul. They have proper decorum and it is a beautiful thing to see.August 2, 2011 3:54 am at 3:54 am #793300

Litvish- my nephew, b’h, is becoming more frum/learned each day. He has, b’h, such a “fire” to do the right thing. He tries very hard to be medakdek b’mitzvos. I see litvish/yeshivish this way, in general.August 2, 2011 4:14 am at 4:14 am #793303
I do see Sephardim giving tremendous kavod harav. It actually reminds me a little bit of how chassidim love and admire their rebbe.
Sephardim also, as far as I know, are very protective of their minhagim. It’s really inspiring, come to think of it.August 2, 2011 8:59 pm at 8:59 pm #793304aries2756Participant
Why is “Seamed” stockings considered tznius? In the 40’s and 50’s it was considered very attractive. It actually attracts more attention especially if the seam is not straight.August 2, 2011 9:19 pm at 9:19 pm #793305HachamMember
Because it makes clear that there is a stocking and is not bare.
