  1. The video is very sweet indeed. However I feel that the title (of this post, not of the video) is misleading and incorrect. It’s not that “modesty makes you beautiful” but that you are already beautiful so you can be modest and it won’t detract. “Virtue” and “modesty” are not the same thing at all. I was put off by the post because of the title until after I saw the video itself.

  2. What I like about this video is that the guys are also dressed modestly.

  3. these look like Christian evangelicals and not Jewish boys. so as you can see (Laura Ben-David) their message is not as clear as our Jewish message would be about being modest.

    so sweet!

  5. So interesting that secular teenage boys song about this….really strange.

    There is a flaw in your argument. Intrinsic beauty from Torah perspective is not going to be in the physical realm. There is physical beauty, but that’s not the beauty that Torah values. Since we are physical creatures, Hashem created a standard against which we measure beauty in this world, and that is modesty. Modesty brings out beauty. Modesty is not a decoration over your beauty. Modesty is what creates beauty. Lack of modesty takes away from beauty. The title is not misleading. It is exactly what the Torah position would be. Avraham did not know what Sarah looked like until they crossed a body of water and he saw her reflection in the water. All those years they lived together, how was he attracted to her? The beauty was in the way she carried herself not the way she looked, and then happen to have also dressed modestly.

    I’m going to show this to my daughter (17), she has been dressing modestly in a very large public high school. The sad part is the guys don’t mind but the girls do. She wore a long sleeve tissue tee under her dress for homecoming and some of the moms called to tell her that she “ruined” the dance! Thank you for sharing the video.

  8. I”m echoing Tamar’s comment. The use of the word “virtue” and the lack of kipahot, and other subtle things lead me to think these guys are evangelicals. So I’ll be sending this to my evangelical friends. It is well done and the message is admirable.

  9. but that’s what i like about jewishmom.com

    chana jenny thinks out of the box

    she puts up some weird stuff too, besides the predictable

    she airs some stuff that is not perfectly aimed at, and suited for, her target audience

    go, chana jenny! we can handle it
