Graduations

For some reason, I’m recalling my high school graduation again.

I did the graduation video. I already wrote about it here.

But one thing: we weren’t allowed to include any photos or videos of the students themselves. Why? Because there would be fathers in the audience.

The graduating class would be sitting on stage, and that made the hanhala uncomfortable enough. (Imagine women being the center of attention at an event celebrating their achievements!) And so what if these students visited each other and presumably ran into each other’s fathers. That was real life, and real life is clearly different than the silver screen. Or projection screen. Whatever. Anyway, point is, once you blow up someone’s face and play it as a video, or show it as a picture, that’s just really bad for men to see.

If you don’t understand this, it’s because you lack the sensitivity to tznius that is the hallmark of a true bas Yisroel.

    Im thinking your school didnt understand what tznius is about, because in my school, graduation ceremonies where for women only.

  2. The idea that for a man to have a picture of a woman is worse than his seeing an actual woman in public sort of makes a little sense, because he can stare at the picture without anyone noticing, including the woman in the picture, but it stops making any sense at all once the picture is also in a public place.
