Tznius in the pool


Bnei Braq brings a whole new level of tznius to the swimming pool -- now available in Petakh Tiqua as well!

Forget your bathing suit...you swim in your clothes.

(Makes me understand why Petakh Tiqua was for sale on ebay in the first place)

shtreimel-tip as always goes to: Amshi...


Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael

From what I understand the fibers left in the pool from this type of swimming destroys the filters.

that sounds like the charedi water park place we went to, women swimming in their housecoats.
(i didn't get in that pool.)

Does this pool have separate swimming hours for men and women and is that necessary?

If one is allowed to encounter members of the opposite sex in their street clothes why should it matter if the clothing happens to be wet?

Answer: It could lead to mixed dancing.

Last year I took the kids to the Chafetz Chaim Water Park in Israel during men's hours (maybe this is where ~sara~ is referring to). It was so disgusting I could not go in the water.
Imagine men, who look like they haven't showered in months, swimming in the tighty wightey's etc. I think my local mikveh is more hygienic.

Okay we got thru Tisha B'Av -- time to bash the Chareidim again! Lashon Hara's good for one day a year....

Yitz:

How the heck did my posting bash the chareidim?!

You don't think a picture of people in CLOTHES in swimming pool to be funny?

I dont go mixed swimmng, nor does my family...but the sight of a flyer with people in a pool wearing CLOTHES is rather humours (IMHO).

I waffled on whether I was going to respond, but in the end I figured what the hell.

I swim on a regular basis. I don't pay any attention to whether it is mixed or not.

But that is neither here nor there. The idea of going swimming fully dressed is both funny and sad.

As I e-mailed you:

Love ya, but I gotta object. Take a look at the comments above mine, all chareidi bashing.

Imagine if someone posted some stupid poster that the Mitnachlim had done, and then started poking fun at it, and all the commentors chimed in - you wouldn't call that bashing?

It's a whole new take on the word 'bathing suit'.

Being married to a Swede (a place where people are very comfortable walking around in their birthday suit- sweating together in saunas, young, old - no problem) I have often found myself swimming in the Baltic in shorts and a t-shirt, which to them is totally absurd. To them I'm a nun.

Ye'he Sh'mey Raba Mevorach said...

Can you explain to me where it says that they actually swim in their clothes? Perhaps it's just for tzniyut in the ad?

And I was taught in my Red Cross (sorry) swimming courses that swimming in your clothes is DANGEROUS. :) Not to mention no fun.

david: i think that was the place. ick.

s said...

the ad is funny, it's some comments that are rude

Anonymous said...

is this a real ad or just a late Purim joke? has anyone actually seen this ad either in a paper or on a poster?
