    Signs have been popping up in Crown Heights asking people to “show some respect” and to “dress modestly this is a Jewish community.”

    One Rabbi told PIX11 News he agrees with the signs.

    “A woman should cover up, she doesn’t have to display what she’s got,” he said.

    But on a hot summer afternoon a woman wearing a short skirt and halter top told PIX11 the Orthodox community should show tolerance and accept others for who they are especially when it is hot outside.

    The signs aren’t affiliated with any temple or Orthodox organization.

    Elisheva Schwartz, who is Orthodox says she is offended by the signs.

    “I think it is very important we don’t inflict our views on everyone.”

    Schwartz said it’s the diversity that makes Brooklyn so great.


    Some of the comments posted on the Vos Iz Neias website highlight the massive Chilul HaShem that is caused by the local women:

    ● The big issue is not the visitors in CH it’s the Jewish women unfortunately.

    ● These signs are very important in Crown Heights, more so than other frum neighborhoods. Hamaevin yovin!

    ● Kol hakavod to the people behind these signs, don’t be intimidated by anyone, crown heights still has a long way to go in the inyan of tznius. Tznius has been on decline… and it is about time that a few good people get together and make the community aware of its importance.

    ● I wish everyone would dress modestly, but considering the population of Crown Heights.better they start the tznius at home.

    ● I see otherwise norhing wrong with these signs, as long as it would be addressed to the Jewish community. It’s about time! I am rarely in Crown Heights, but OMG, when I go, I have seen women so immodestly dressed, so shocking. Even someone I know in Boro Park, who is not Chassidish, just regular frum told me one day, that he thought some of the women dressed like […]. Oh, no, I would never say that, Just that it is not uncommon it seems to see women dressed with lower neck lines, skirts above their knees, elbows uncovered, and not wearing socks.

    ● The Frum residents themselves are the ones who should take heed. Anyone walking thru crown heights will be shocked at the pritzus and the low level of Tznius that is now considered acceptable there.

    ● Most people here seem to be missing the point entirely. The immodest clothing problem is not among the shiksas! No one expects them to dress properly. It’s among unzerer in Crown Heights, worse than in any other neighborhood I’ve noticed! Just take a drive thru if you haven’t seen it.
