Burqa Babes in Israel

Back in January, Y-Love discussed the issue of Jewish women in the Israeli town of Bet Shemesh taking the concept of modesty so seriously that they started wearing Islamic style burqas – a garment worn head to toe by Muslim women which covers every inch of their bodies. Of course this is a serious issue and merits thoughtful discussion, religious women are encouraged (to say the least) to dress modestly, but most people believe that this development is an affront, overkill if you will.

And then Purim rolled along and we got a treat: a funny Purim video that transcends the holiday! What does life in Beit Shemesh, Israel look like for Jewish women clad in burqas? Watch this hilarious video and find out!

All bow down to Jameel at the Muqata who blogged this first!
