My guess is that hoods are too casual, like Jeans skirt vs Cotton/Poly/Wool.July 1, 2011 2:07 pm at 2:07 pm #782679adorableParticipant
its because they can be casual and give a trashy look which they are trying to avoid.July 2, 2011 12:27 am at 12:27 am #782680gefenParticipant
oy oy oy! what next? if you’re wearing a “hoodie” you don’t necessarily look trashy. if the sweater is in good condition – ie: not wrinkled, torn, dirty, etc., I see nothing wrong. there are some very nice sweaters and sweatshirts that have hoods. i, myself happen to like them and yes i even own a few. they are very comfortable. and believe it or not – my daughters are not embarrassed to be seen with me when i wear them! believe me, my daughters are very makpid on tznius.July 3, 2011 4:54 am at 4:54 am #782682yolkMember
well, in some high schools i know that they don’t allow hoods since
a. they give more of a hang out look
b. kids can hide cell phones in their pocket and they don’t want kids sneaking them in
and c. kids can listen to music in class and that is something they definitly want to avoid-
problem is when its raining……
not that i don’t agrea with them but it does have its consJuly 3, 2011 6:06 am at 6:06 am #782683mewhoParticipant
i find a sweatshirt with a hood to be very convenient. in the winter i can put the hood up if its cold and i dont have a hat. in the spring or fall i can put the hood up if its raining and i dont have an umbrellaJuly 3, 2011 6:43 am at 6:43 am #782684dunnoMember

Peacemaker in the Topic of “Hoods”!
There is actually a reality show from AETV called that.

“Because they might not at all gree with the view that this is a tznius issue or a sensitive issue and are upset with people finding more and more innocent things to call untzniusdig among the many that already are actually untsniusdig. If their actions are tzniusdig, the hoods are not trashy at all.”

Schools have forbidden hoods already for quite a few years. Most mothers allow their kids to wear hooded sweaters when the kids are not going to school. That’s how much everyone agrees with this narishkeit.July 3, 2011 11:57 pm at 11:57 pm #782692Josh31Participant
Sometimes a stringency shows a greater sensitivity to others, sometimes a leniency shows greater sensitivity.
In a related recent thread I felt the more stringent position showed respect for the privacy of others.
Here, equating informality with immodesty shows a high degree of elitism.July 4, 2011 12:35 am at 12:35 am #782693
I trust our girls mechanchim have very good reason for disallowing hoods.July 4, 2011 12:40 am at 12:40 am #782694
Fortunately, my daughter’s school has no such restriction. I trust that they have good reasons too.

Does your daughter’s school enforce a prohibition on loud clothing?July 4, 2011 12:56 am at 12:56 am #782696
Does your daughter’s school enforce a prohibition on loud clothing?
I fail to see what that has to do with hoods. But, nonetheless, to answer your question, the answer is yes.

My girls school does not allow hoods and it took me along time to figure out why but I did finally don’t jump me but pay attention to somebody else (not urself) wearing a hooded dress or shirt not a sweatshirt and u will notice the front of ur shirt comes up very high on their neck and then in the bk the hood hangs down…and there is a lot of the bk of the neck and the bk exposed more then if u would wear a round necked shirtJuly 4, 2011 5:12 am at 5:12 am #782698RABBAIMParticipant
Because it stated with kushim. Do we need to imitate them?? Look how many play basketball today in camps and Yeshivos. the kushi becomes our role model?? How sad. How pathetic!!
Instead of being the light onto the nations we become followers of what??July 4, 2011 11:52 am at 11:52 am #782699

When to British got controlled of Palestine during the British Mandate. The yishuv wanted the Beis Din’s to have legal standing.
The British agreed to allow the Beis Din to have legal standing if the Beis Din’s agreed to have a court of appeals. I forgot which Rav when he heard of the Court of Appeals , praised the ideaJuly 4, 2011 2:12 pm at 2:12 pm #782702
Look how many play basketball today in camps and Yeshivos.
Really, that’s the biggest problem with our youth today according to you — that they play basketball??!! What next? Will you also forbid the eating of fried chicken because “kushim” eat it too?
The bottom line is that there is nothing at all wrong with wearing hoods. If some schools want to make that a requirement, that’s up to them, but it in no way affects anyone who is not a student at those schools.
The WolfJuly 4, 2011 4:45 pm at 4:45 pm #782703MiddlePathParticipant
I absolutely agree with Wolf. Most kids who play basketball at camps and yeshivos don’t do it to “be like Mike” or go to the NBA. They do it because it’s a fun activity to do with friends. It’s a healthy outlet. It’s so much better than a lot of other things a kid might do on his/her free time. So, I don’t view it as a problem. In fact, I view it as a blessing. I thank G-d that kids find fun in playing sports.
About hoods, I don’t see why it should be considered a problem, but if a school has that rule, fine.July 4, 2011 5:32 pm at 5:32 pm #782704HealthParticipant
“but it in no way affects anyone who is not a student at those schools.”
Unless of course the hooded garment reveals something that is supposed to be covered!July 4, 2011 6:17 pm at 6:17 pm #782705apushatayidParticipant
The reason hoods are not allowed, is because they are looking to one up their competitor down the street. Give it a year and most will have adopted the no hood policy, so to stand out, someone will ban sweatshirts altogether.
