What Is Modesty? Not This.

Hey Oakies. Here I am, blogging to you from Las Vegas, quite possibly the least modest place on the face of the planet. Everything here is legal that shouldn't be, and while yes, it's fun, it's not exactly kosher. And yet, I find the craziness and immodesty of Vegas to be nothing compared to that of what is going on in Beit Shemesh, Israel.

Naama Margolese is an 8 year-old girl who is what we would classify as "Modern Othrodox" (not much unlike myself). She wears only skirts, covers the elbows, and comes from a frum household. And yet she is accosted daily, spat at, and hurled words of insult by Ultra-Orthodox extremeisits who deem her immodest. Again, she is  EIGHT. Shame on these men who call themselves Jews, and claim to live a modest lifestyle. There is nothing modest or tzanua about this at all. . Since when is it ok for a Jew to act this way? I am ashamed. I guess you can say Vegas seems tame by comparison.
