A girl joining the army
I heard that women may not go to war. What punishment will a woman get if she is in the army? Does it depends on what kind of service? How can a girl who joined the army rectify it?
A Lamp in the Darkness
In times such as ours, modesty is truly “a lamp in the darkness";it is infinitely more than what we wear — it is a way of emerging from a deep vision of ourselves
A Royal Crown - The Head Covering of a Woman
The mitzvah that instructs a married woman to cover her hair seems like an inconceivable restriction to many people. What’s the difference between her hair and the permissibly exposed hair of a single woman?
A woman’s modesty
I began to dress modestly two months ago and have been wearing dresses and long skirts. In my workplace they didn’t take it too well and I have been suffering snide comments, insults, and looks about it. Some of the managers barely say hello to me since then ... I do not know how to overcome this and wonder if it’s even worth keeping this commandment if I am suffering so much because of it.
A woman’s voice singing in public
Recently, a new series was screened on TV called "Family Performance", and several religious families performed on the program. One of the families was strictly religious and the mother claimed that she received permission from a rabbi to sing with her two children in the program (she says that she usually only sings before women). Can a rabbi give permission for this? And if so, why? Thanks.
Can a husband be present in the delivery room?
I was wondering if there is a halachic problem for the husband to be in the delivery room with his wife, without touching because she is already a Nida, or is it better not to be with her? Thank you.

Can a woman recite a blessing when wearing a swimsuit
Is a woman allowed to get a license for a motor scooter? Is it a matter of modesty or is it just something that is not acceptable in the strictly religious world? I also wanted to ask whether a woman may recite a blessing or pray in the sea when she is wearing a swimsuit? Thank you very much!
Can one touch one’s grandmother’s brother?
I wanted to ask about my grandmother's brother concerning the laws of touching. What is he considered — a grandfather or an uncle? Thank you.
Can women wear pants to protect their life?
In recent weeks there was a severe deterioration in the security situation. Horrific attacks occurred which seem directed specifically against men and women who are Orthodox and strictly religious, and who can be identified by their attire. This includes the religious girl from Samaria who was stabbed a few weeks ago. My question is in view of the exceptional situation in which Jews are murdered because they appear religious, may one wear pants if the goal is to mask one’s religious identity because one is motivated by the commandment "You shall scrupulously preserve your lives" only until the situation calms down? Thanks in advance.

Dying hair different hues
I was wondering if it's okay to dye hair several hues, and I saw that you advised someone "as long as it is not eye-catching, it is allowed". How can I know what is considered okay and what is not? So I want to ask a more-specific question: if my hair color is dark brown, is it OK to dye some hairs a lighter brown shade? Many thanks in advance and a good and quiet week with G-d's help!
