I feel it’s about time that we in Lakewood take a strong stance on the breach of Tznius which some believe is optional.
I’m not a ‘Yeshivishe guy’ or ‘Frummie guy’, but this has got to stop. Why do some feel it is okay to dress completely against Halacha, and then shop in our stores, being Machshil those who are looking to adhere to the guidelines set forth by the Torah?
I was recently at a NON-JEWISH family-friendly facility, and there was a sign on the door asking patrons to dress with modest clothing (cover-ups etc) to ensure a family-friendly atmosphere.
It hit me.
Here you have a facility that has no Mitzvah of Tznius, yet it set guidelines to enforce basic decency, but here in America’s largest Torah city we have zero requirements?
I strongly feel Lakewood shops, including but not limited to groceries and restaurants, should hang signs stating ‘Do not enter unless dressed according to Halacha’.
