Is Maroon an OK colour for a girl/women to wear?July 14, 2021 2:45 pm at 2:45 pm #1991540rationalParticipant
Black only.July 14, 2021 3:32 pm at 3:32 pm #1991548Avram in MDParticipant
Yes, but only as polka dots on a green dress.July 14, 2021 3:44 pm at 3:44 pm #1991549[email protected]Participant
a wise woman Mrs. Weinberger of jerusalem taught me a nice clue as far as colors and Tznius
she said our eyes can easily adjust to colors that appear alot in the world that Hashem created
shades of black brown blue and green tan and yellow we see alot of
this means they are comfortable to the eye and are tznius for women’s clothes too
whereas red we have just here and there in some flowers so you may have thin lines or gentle designs of red in your clothing
think for yourself if maroon is ok or may it hurt the eyes to see too much of and then it is not TzniusJuly 15, 2021 12:19 am at 12:19 am #1991813GadolhadorahParticipant
Maivin: Is it ok for guys using “Maivin” as a posting name to occasionally show signs of intelligence while trolling on social media??July 15, 2021 12:57 am at 12:57 am #1991828🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant
That seemed a bit harshJuly 15, 2021 10:05 am at 10:05 am #1991897hmlParticipant
Why not? Fire engine red & bright yellow are harsh on the eye & attract attention, but maroon is a muted color. If you are looking for approval, you have mine.July 15, 2021 2:41 pm at 2:41 pm #1992048AviraDeArahParticipant

This is what Jews are worried about in 2021?July 15, 2021 9:15 pm at 9:15 pm #1992129AviraDeArahParticipant
Yabia – our concern for halacha…even the smallest kutzo shel yud, is unwavering and not dependent on anything else going on around us. “Alll Hashem has in this world is 4 amos of halacha”, it is everything to us
When the baalei tosfos were about to be murdered by crusaders, their last energy they spent writing a regular tosfos on bava basra. They wrote it in their holy blood. They were martyred the following day.
They didn’t write ethical exhortations or liturgical poems – the “big things” that a commoner would think of… they wrote nothing but halacha, and a halacha that isn’t practically applicable nonetheless.
All we have is Hashem, and all He has is Torah.July 16, 2021 3:07 am at 3:07 am #1992278rationalParticipant
As an expert in vision, I found your comment regarding colors that are found in nature very interesting. Their relationship to tznius is an insightful concept.
There is almost no black in nature. The black that does exist is a product of fire , volcanic eruption and destruction.July 16, 2021 8:29 am at 8:29 am #1992319Yabia OmerParticipant
You’re comparing a chat room on “Yeshiva World” to Baalei Hatosfot? Good one! The issue here is an obsession with trivial minutiae that has no Toelet. Furthermore, these minutiae are almost always about Chitzoniut: what color, what length, what hat, what peyos, etc. Is Maroon tznius? Really? You guys have a nothing better to discuss?July 16, 2021 8:30 am at 8:30 am #1992322Always_Ask_QuestionsParticipant
Black in nature? Night? That would be half of the world. Maybe you are thinking modern world where there’s ambient light all the time even away from the cities. Think being in a totally dark country side on a rosh hodesh…
Jews always saw black as a sign of mourning. As rabban gamliel explained to some people who mourned constantly, it is not appropriateJuly 16, 2021 8:40 am at 8:40 am #1992335🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant
Yabia – you do realize you have done nothing but wander from thread to thread looking down your nose at people without actually contributing anything to remedy your complaints. Is that what Jewsdo in 2021?July 16, 2021 3:57 pm at 3:57 pm #1992461GadolhadorahParticipant
“Is that what Jews do in 2021?”
Well, yes if you are suffering from terminal social media boredom on a 100 degree erev shabbos Cha’zon when everyone else you know has left the City for the Catskills.
