Science is not infallible and the more we know, the better we understand things. To begin with, attention focuses immediately on the woman: the book begins and closes with the woman speaking. By projecting ourselves in a less external way, we become aware of our own depth and internality, and are more likely to relate to those around us in a deeper, less superficial manner.” Rather than seeing tzniut as a system imposed upon women from without, Kessel viewed her decision to dress modestly as a process of self-actualization.

The explosion of Jewish Studies scholarship has been one of the most dramatic developments in American Jewish life during the past half-century. The people are pictured as in need of an intercessor, a mediator between them and God.
