Resolutions in Tznius

This past shabbos a group of Rochie's friends from Seminary got together to learn in her zechus. Knowing how careful Rochie always is with the mitzvah of tznius they decided to make a campaign to encourage others to take on a Hachlota to improve in their tznius.

Bassie, Dina, Rochel and Baila came up with a flyer where people were given suggestions of different hachlotas they could make.

At the junior Nshei event on Monday, Sivan 15, these letters were distributed and they encouraged people to take on a Hachlota in Rochie's Zechus. Many people who knew Rochie were there and first learned about her situation. Rochie's friends talked to them and many were visibly moved to take on Hachlotas in Rochie's Zechus.

70 people responded immediately and submitted Hachlotas right away. Others took the flyer home and said they would take care of it on their own.

The flyer was also emailed to many contacts and we hope will make a big impact on a lot of people.

If you made a Hachlota as a result of this campaign and did not return the paper to Rochie's friends, feel free to post your Hachlota here.

Thanks to all who were involved.

Being a friend and classmate of Rochie's, I am 1000 percent sure that she did not let ANY hair show out from under her tichel. I KNOW how tznius she is!!! My Hachlata is to make sure that my hair does not show out from under my tichel EVER!!! I used to be good about this, but have recently slacked off. This is my wake-up call.

The Letters from the Rebbe that you posted is really encouraging me to think positive about Rochie's health situation, and I KNOW that Hashem will heal Rochie K'Heref Ayihn!!

Many people who knew Rochie were there and they didnt know about her situation.We talked to them and many were visibly moved to take on Hachlotas in Rochies Zechus. We came home with 70 Hachlotas, people wrote their name and their mothers name and we intend to take these to the Ohel.
Others took home the flyer and said they would take care of it on their own.
we also emailed this flyer to all our contacts and hope to make a big impact on a lot of people.

I take pride in operating the http://www.simchawear.com website with the utmost of tznius (modesty). When people post a dress for sale or rent, I will remove the hands and face. Call me crazy, but this is a crazy world and you've got to fit in.
