Cover your nees [sic]

 

Jacob Da Jew  tweeted and blogged the link to this article I don’t know what surprised me more, the article or the comments or the subject of the article. Basically in Lakewood a woman’s child was handed a note to give to his mother telling her that her knees were showing. The comments are ……… I don’t even know what to say…..

  1. I think that halachikly, the woman should have been approached directly. Never use kids.

  2. maybe he was worried it wouldn’t have been tzanuah to approach her directly….If he would have approached me he would have gone away with a huge flea in his ear….but thats just me.

  3. Wow, that post is bad enough but the comments are beyond out of touch with reality. Maybe the women in Lakewood dress so “pritzusdik” because they are tired of having the weight of being completely responsible for the failing of men. This whole concept of a woman having to wear baggy, frumpy clothing so that they don’t cause a man to sin is just so ridiculous and these people need to really get a clue. I mean frum women should dress in a modest manner but the attitude of some of these men is just galling.

  4. It really depends on what your relationship is… I wouldn’t tell that to someone I don’t know, but I have told close friends (male and female) that their shirts have slipped, etc. A modicum of tact is also necessary.

  5. The kid doesn’t know what the note is about. Nor does he need to know.
