Dress in accordance with Tsniout

Dress in accordance with Tsniout

In the same way that the man is required to act discreetly, he is also required to dress discreetly. The requirement of tsni'out is incompatible with dressing in a garish manner and attracting attention. In addition, the garment has an additional function in the context of the tsni'out which consists of covering the body and preventing its disclosure. The Torah, which requires man to internalize his personality and not to display his actions, also requires him to hide the members of his body. From this requirement come the laws that forbid the unveiling of the body and all the mitzvot concerning the prohibition of exposing one's body. It turns out that in the clothing of the man will be expressed two parameters: the tsni'out in the sense of refusal of bodily disclosure, and the inner tsni'out as an expression of the humility of man. The connoisseur of the Tanakh (Jewish biblical canon) is well aware of the great severity with which any unnecessary disclosure of the body is treated. The verse says, "For Hashem thy God is present in your camp, to save you and deliver your enemies to you. And your camp will be holy; there will be no immodest disclosure at your place. If this were the case Hashem would withdraw [from your camp] "(Devarim 23:15) The very presence of Hashem imposes the obligation of tsni'ut. Non-tsni'ut-like behavior takes Hashem away from his people and can cause a withdrawal of divine protection, Dore forbid.
