if you look in the hamodia r. dovid also asked r. freund to speak about it. but ami takes him asking people to speak about the draft, as if its his particular mission from r. dovid. and as if that is an endorsement of him.May 25, 2010 4:03 am at 4:03 am in reply to: Breach in Tznius: Recent affliction attacking Klal Yisroel #1025110
also i dont see the point of all this discusion of feelings ect. who cares about feelings. ask your rav what is the halcha, and what is the spirit of halcha. and go with that.
since when are we on that level where our personal feelings and thoughts tell us what is right. that is not judaism.May 25, 2010 3:59 am at 3:59 am in reply to: Breach in Tznius: Recent affliction attacking Klal Yisroel #1025109
i would also like to point out, that dressing in tight clothing or short skirts does not look more beautiful in the eyes of most men. rather since it is showing off the womens form, that is just stam meorer taavos.
i think that what has happened is, that since frum women want to look nice [and that is legitimate] they therefore wear these things. and i dont think that they do it like the goyim to merorer taavos. however i think that what in the womens mind. looks nice, is based on the culture that we have been exposed to. and since the secular world the men and designers that are fashioning the clothing, are fashioning based on what is meorer taavos. therefore that is what determines what is considered looking nice.
just like in general in a persons mind, what looks nice to him or her is based on what the fashion is in their times and the fashion of ten years ago doesnt look nice.May 25, 2010 3:54 am at 3:54 am in reply to: Breach in Tznius: Recent affliction attacking Klal Yisroel #1025108
i am just randomly posting this as food for thought.
i am a yeshiva bochur learning in yerushalaim.
and i can tell you that walking through the charedie neigborhoods on the way back from yeshiva. i dont see non frum people. rather i see the frum married women. and when trying to take your mind off of taavos, it is very hard when you see the uncovered leg [below, even if the knee is covered], that is meorer tavvos. and it gets into your head. even seeing one women like this, when you are sensitive to it, is meorer. and causes taavos, and who knows what else.
