A few years ago, as I was gradually starting to become stronger [in keeping the mitzvoth (commandments)], my daughters were already learning at a local mamlachti-dati (public-religious) school. I wasn't happy with the education there (cursing, hitting, inadequate tzni'ut (modesty). Therefore I transferred them to a Chabad school. At the time, I had heard that it was a school with values and modesty. From 3 rd to 5 th grades, it was really OK; however, this year many girls that come families that do not keep Torah & Mitzvoth (the commandments) and naturally modesty, registered in the school. And even though the Principal talked and wrote a few times to the parents to be strict about modesty, nothing was done and things remained the same. Now, I've been privileged to register my girls (the oldest already going up to 7 th grade and the youngest to 3 rd grade) in a chareidi (ultra-Orthodox) school in Kfar Gideon. And now I'm afraid that my daughters will not find their place there, since they've already tasted the Olam hagashmi (the materialistic world) – T.V., mobile phones and electronic games – since their friends, both in school and at the moshav (village) have no connection at all to the Torah. I want so much for them to be successful in the new school! How can I convince them? How can I teach and instruct them for a life of Torah & Mitzvoth and to love the Torah and love Hashem (G-d)? Unfortunately, I had a TV at home, and I've been privileged to get rid of it and I also took away the not-Kosher cell-phones from them. But the environment has such a strong influence on them; they are so weak. If a friend/neighbor that is not tznu'ah (immodest) comes to us, my youngest daughter always says, "why do I have to put on skirts and long-sleeved blouses?" How can I strengthen them? Can the teachers in school give direction for the weak girls or not? Thank you very much,
Becoming religious without a head covering
I was asked by a man from my community here in Paris, who is coming closer to religion, what he is supposed to do in a situation where he does not have a head covering near him and wants to eat something. Should he make blessing without covering his head, or should he rather not make a blessing at all.
