Rabbi Drew leading a discussion on modesty at Moishe House

Rabbi Drew led a text-based discussion at the Moishe House of Orange County on two separate topics yesterday. Beginning with a quick study of texts relating to the Ten Days of Awe, the period encompassing Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur, Rabbi Drew then moved on to a discussion of sartorial modesty, based primarily on rabbinic sources. This was an enthralling discussion that gave the participants a sense of where the rules regarding corporeal covering derive. The topic had been suggested to Rabbi Drew by residents of the Moishe House at a previous event and Rabbi Drew was happy to oblige. The goal was to shine light on where these ideas derive about sartorial modesty in covering up women, but also sought to show that the term modesty is not only used in reference to covering oneself up, but also that of behavior.
