Tznius is central to a woman's mitzvah observance; to her very identity.
So why do so many of our daughters feel uncomfortable speaking about it?
Penimi is changing the dialogue surrounding tznius - one classroom at a time.
Our full-year high school curriculum explores the mitzvah of tznius using a refreshingly novel approach based on Torah sources and intellectual understanding of the concept of modesty. It offers students a view of the topic in a way they've never experienced before.
Currently taught in 100+ high schools, the course builds positive associations with this special mitzvah - one that protects the grace and dignity of Jewish women, despite the degradation of the world around us. Thought-provoking class discussions help students internalize the lessons while building a healthy relationship with tznius so that it becomes a treasured part of their lives.
A PEEK INTO OUR CURRICULUM...
Tznius is...depth, quality, beauty, appropriateness, dignity, and being an internally focused person.
Tznius helps us maintain the power and potency of truth in a world of external values - where there's so much illusion and exaggerated exposure...that the core reality gets distorted.
After the sin of Adam and Chava, man was suddenly comprised of two entities: a vibrant neshama and a vocal guf, each vying for its own needs. Hashem called out to man, "Ayeka?" Who are you? Are you a guf that has a neshama, or a neshama that has a guf?
The more one identifies with his inner self, the more self-esteem the individual will have.
Help your students uncover these profound insights as they explore the mitzvah of tznius, and teach them to
preserve their modesty and self-dignity for a lifetime.
