Free Advertising -- Ateres Program to Teach About Tzniut

I received the following by email and felt like I just had to share it. I don't want to spread the name and contact info on the web without permission, but if you are truly interested in sponsoring, contact me and I can point you in the correct direction.

This is important, for we all know that girl schools don't stress tznius enough.
The email follows:

Dear Friends,

Our Ateres program, run with great success this past winter in Lakewood, is set to go worldwide this fall, be"h. Ateres is a program where elementary aged school girls gather together on Friday nights after licht bentchen to learn about the mitzvah of tznius in an enjoyable and uplifting way. Since the program was presented on Bnos Melochim's worldwide event this spring, communities across the globe have expressed interest in starting the program in their city. (See complete listing of cities in attachment.)

A complete 150-page Leaders Manual is currently in the final stages of preparation. It consists of 25 lessons, each covering a different area of tznius (in dress, speech and behavior) and includes stories, halachos, games, topics for discussion, kabalos etc. for each lesson. All material is age appropriate and presented in an exciting and engaging format.

At this time, Ateres is seeking sponsors to join in this extraordinary zechus. (PLEASE SEE ATTACHMENT) Each Ateres lesson is available for sponsorship, and the sponsor's name and zechus intended (refuah, yeshuah, zivug, l'ilui nishmas etc.) will be included with that lesson. This leaders manual will be sent to hundreds of leaders worldwide, who will in turn impact thousands of bnos Yisrael. If you, or anyone you know, would be interested in taking part in this unprecedented opportunity, please contact [REDACTED] at [REDACTED] or at the above email address. If you are unable to sponsor a complete lesson but wish to have a part nonetheless, all contributions towards our printing expenses are tremendously appreciated! Every donation adds up!

We would greatly appreciate if you could pass this email on to anyone you feel would take an interest in Ateres. In addition, if you would like to sign up as a community coordinator or Ateres branch leader, please contact us as well.

Thank you for your interest and may we all merit the myriad brachos tznius brings, and ultimately the geulah shleimah,

Absolutely, all it takes is tznius to bring the geulah. And, of course, it is a mitzvah unique to women, for as a certain rabbi said, what Torah does for men, tznius does for women. That is why females should be convinced that tznius it the subject for them to study and not any other part of Torah, including the principles of other halachos, for they simply cannot do for a woman's neshoma what tznius can.
