What Orthodox Jewish Women Wear to the Beach…(Pictures)


THE FORWARD – Moshe Sebbag, the rabbi of the Grand Synagogue of Paris, announced this week that he supports the French ban on burkinis, the modest swimwear some Muslim women wear to cover up on the beach.

Wearing a burkini, he said, is not “innocent” and it sends a message.

But, we ask Sebbag, what difference exactly is there between the garb Orthodox Jewish women wear to the beach than the burkinis that some Muslim women wear?

And why should one religious group of women be allowed to follow their traditions over another?

    The Jewish swimsuits are missings shark fins on their backs.

    Why is this even an ISSUE?

    Here is for all the fat guys in Speedos. Truly this guy does make me want to smile. The face on the guy in the speedo above is also terrifying btw. He is not easy on the eyes. However, due to laws based on sanitary reasons, the Speedo is the only legal swimwear for males for public pools in France.

    BTW Every time I go to the pool I see a few Speedos and they stand out among the normal wear here. Always a European man. Always.

    That bottom group of ladies look like nuns of some order or another. In truth, nuns do not swim in public but access smaller pools usually within the cloister. And even then they wear a solid black one piece.But they do frolic…. on beaches. Illegal also.

    Meanwhile, as France tramps along its road to destruction, other European nations are being advised to stock up on supplies and water? Something is amiss here!


    This is so unsanitary for the women themselves once they are out of the water and into the warmth. Not to mention, silly considering the amount of fabric on their bodies.

    I know she is a diversionbut… meet The IRON NUN shown here in her swimwear. Her name is Sister Madonna Buder. Even nuns can move on from the stereotypes.

    With all the garbage going on in France why should the government harp on the burkhini? It’s purely a diversion. Let them wear whatever they want to at the beach. As far as Muslim women wearing the burkha in public on the street, the only problem I have with that is that it is a great place to hide explosive or any other kind of weapon and also a great way to shop lift as has been proven by many videos. In the US, many Muslim women insist on wearing full fledged niqabs (veil over face) during work in the public sector. I have no problem with them wearing a veil –but please no niqabs. And yes France and the US should outlaw fat guys in speedos.
