Steinman Shlita, R’ Nosson Tzvi Finkle Shlita R’ Michel Yehuda Lefkowitz Shlita and many other Gedolim and Rabbonim were in attendance. The Asifa was intended for Yungerleit only – women were not allowed at the event, and even unmarried men were asked to leave.
A number of basic regulations were read with regards to Tznius. Shirts, skirts, sweaters should be loose enough that the form of the body is not seen. The clothing should not be transparent, and a lining or additional shirt should be worn under any transparent fabric.

“Skirts should begin at the waist and end at the middle of the leg, and as mentioned, should be loose and not of clinging fabric.
