When Bil'am, who came to curse the Jewish Nation, looked at the tents of the twelve tribes, he noticed something unusual about the manner in which they encamped. Not one single tent's opening was facing the opening of another, in order that no one would look inside his/her neighbor's tent (Rashi, Bamidbar 24:2) 

Raise the Bar and Lower the Hemline!

Thursday, July 5, 2012/Tammuz 15, 5772

This was a clear manifestation of the people's sensitivity towards each other. This is how careful they were about respecting the dignity and privacy of those around them. Upon seeing this, Bil'am said the famous phrase: "How goodly are your tents O Jacob, your dwelling places O Israel" (Bamidbar, 24:5)

How does it apply to our days? Perhaps, in more than one way. The one I would like to focus on may not be a popular one, but is a most critical one. Bil'am, a non Jew, understood that which some of us may perhaps misunderstand: our strength as people and as women, in particular, lies in our level of modesty!

One of the greatest challenges of our time, is the exaggerated emphasis on the external. It is of the utmost importance for all of us to look attractive. It is part of our feminine essence. However, it has to remain within the clear cut guidelines of the Halakha (Jewish law). 

Why is it that we look at our friends and neighbors, in order to determine the acceptable length of our skirts, and make them shorter? Didn't we learn the lesson from our forefathers in the desert, who did not look at the other person's tent?

Why is it that religious girls' schools, sometimes have the need to send letters to their students' parents stating: "Your daughter's uniform skirts must fully cover the knees.. do not shorten the skirts..." Don't we know it without them writing?

We are all searching for ways to bring blessings upon our homes. We gather 40 women to make the Berakha of Hafrashath Halla, we arrange Tehilleem groups and Berakoth party and more. these are all praiseworthy and worthwhile activities to be engaged in. But did we forget the most fundamental and important Seghullah -- Modesty?!

Modesty is the source of blessings and a most powerful tool to bestow abundant blessings on our homes and families. Bil'am knew the secret. We surely do too, but must put it into practice.

Raise the Bar and Lower the Hemline!

Dear ModestyAnytime, 

The snoods were pretty,
And arrived on time,
Carefully packaged - 
Service sublime!


I LOVE them.  Super, super comfortable and incredibly nice looking. They are just terrific!!!!


Love my favorite seller! She's THE best! Beautiful pieces. I receive compliments literally every time I wear her items. That's why I never leave the house without wearing something she's made for me. Order from her won't regret it!!!


The dickey is absolutely gorgeous. I have been disappointed by what's available in stores. It's going to enhance all of my tops. It has a zipper and hooks on the back so it will be very easy to pull on over my head. I'm going to feel elegant and very much the lady!


Thank you for my recent order of snoods, including snood beret, which is fabulous.  Thank you for all that you do for Klal Yisroel.


This is a wonderful seller to work with. She created this cowl collar dickey in a custom color I requested and shipped it quickly. The color was exactly what I wanted. This dickey drapes *beautifully* and the bodice fits invisibly under my blouse.


I really love this fabric, I asked for this to be created from all cotton fabric and it arrived so soon! I love the way it looks and it didn't take long at all, many thanks!

This is a great dickey, I love that it is all cotton. It drapes beautifully and is easy to put on and off. Thanks!!
