"Educating Toward Tzniut- Modesty"

by Rabbanit Dr. Leah Vizel

Recently an Educational Forum on the subject of “Educating Toward Tzniut "was held at our Elkana Campus.

While on the other hand this topic was chosen particularly due to the discomfort of speaking about it in a public forum. The goal was to open with a discussion and to begin a process in which each student will be able to formulate her own position in regard to this important subject before she ventures out into the educational world. The working assumption was that this Educational Forum cannot cover the subject in its entirety and that which was started here is to be continued.

Study Days For Young Women in National Service (Sherut Leumi)


Over the past few weeks we conducted a number of seminars for young
