A long time ago I read about this sign being posted outside a Jewish synagogue and always wanted to find a picture of it! At the time I did Google searches to no avail as I wanted to include it as part of the book I wrote. It was until recently that I came across this picture! I find it so interesting. It’s re-assuring to know that the Orthodox Jewish people follow the standards of modesty to this day. It also shows that our interpretation of scripture with respect to the standards of modesty are correct and aren’t really some crazy rules recently made up by man. These principles were passed on to God’s people since the beginning and It’s lovely that modesty hasn't died out considering the decay of morality in the last century. It’s great to know that some people still stand strong on their convictions and foundations that God has placed for us for a successful Christian walk.
1 Peter 3:5 – “ For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves”
