The human body is a sacred creation of God. Jewish law requires total respect of our body and to honor it by dressing modestly. Although different branches of Judaism have diversities in dressing properly based on Jewish laws, there are, however, basic requirements to which all these variations conform.

  • Married women should cover their hair when they are surrounded by men other than their husband. Customs may differ as to how much hair should show beneath the head covering.
  • Wear skirts that are long enough to cover your knees when seated.
  • Women should wear stockings so as not to expose their legs. Dark stockings are preferred. Men should not wear short pants.
  • Clothing should not be too tight. It should not be revealing. Long sleeves that will cover the elbow is mandatory for women.
  • Men should wear a yarmulke.
