This past Sunday, the Yeshiva of Central Queens (YCQ) held a Ladies’ Luncheon for the Junior High School Girls and their guests. Several eighth-grade girls worked on the event to make it fun and meaningful. Last year, the current eighth-grade girls spoke with Ms. Schlisser about tz’nius and new ways to help encourage tz’nius behaviors in school. Ms. Schlisser said, “I set up the Ladies’ Luncheon because I heard the girls’ request to take a different approach to tz’nius and feeling more empowered, and I wanted to honor their request.” The event was held on Sunday, October 3, a few days before Rosh Chodesh, which was appropriate because Rosh Chodesh is known to be a special holiday for women.
