Get psak from a Rov instead of advice from Internet Poskim.
Yanky55 sorry bit of dislexia on my part..see Sefer Vayikra Perek Yud, posuk gimmel “B’krovi Ekadesh”…although there may be a Rashi that brings this loshon misoiras, I seem to remember but can’t find it now. Anyway the general meaning is still the same. SS
Clearheaded, true, but you’re preaching to the choir. Try telling it to the Israelis.
“What is the meaning of wearing the traditional “yeshivish” uniform of black and white?”
“I guess what I’m asking is: What does a guy’s levush truly represent about him???”
It all starts with “Don’t separate yourself from the community”
Indeed, many of the minhagim of dress came from our holy fathers in Europe. We don’t have reshus to go out from their derech. “Minhag avoisanu b’yodainu”.
A person has to make himself part of the klal. If he doesn’t, you have to understand what the problem is. Is he a baal gaavah and wants to stand out or be different? There are acceptable ways to do that. Is he not committed? Does he not understand the value of sholom? These are big questions to the guy who can’t dress properly or wants to make some kind of statement.
Part of being a frum Yid is making yourself conform. There is plenty of room on the inside for unique hashkafa and personality, but if you can’t dress like a mench, *you* have a problem. If you can’t conform to levush, Torah lo kol shekain?
You’re a little confused. The goyim are a sword let loose in the world, but they come from the cheit of all Jews, even those who don’t act like Jews.
The misdeeds of Israel (the state) and freiers do tremendous nezek to frum Yidden. “Eskadesh b’kroivi” That is why the freiers act with such zealousness to their rishus, they are intentionally holding back the geulah and making frum Yidden suffer for their aveirahs.
The answer to your question, which you should already, is Hashem hardened the heart of Paroh to make Hashem’s Name known in the world. Yehi ratzon that the same was true in this abortion of justice and that Sholom Mordechai ben Rivkah and all the emmesdike Yidden will be zoche to the geluah shalaimah immediately.
