The second annual “Heart to Heart”, modest women-only fashion show, featuring dresses and apparel combinations that adhere to seniut (modesty) guidelines, was hosted this year on Sunday, May 2nd, by the girls of Magen David Yeshiva High School. The models, both young and old – including grandmothers appearing with their grand-daughters, mothers modeling with their daughters, and teenagers modeling alone – seemed to glow in their fashionable attire. As they swiveled and turned on the auditorium runway, it was clear that the show gave an entirely new definition to “looking good””; these girls felt it within themselves and it radiated outward. The special feeling was borne out of the noble cause and all the hard work that went into the event. The proceeds from admission tickets and a generously donated Chinese Auction went toward benefiting two organizations: Sharsheret, a national non-for-profit organization that provides resources and support for Jewish women and families facing breast cancer, and Comedy Cures. Everyone in attendance felt proud of the girls and shared the hope that the packed show will inspire others to follow their example of hesed and look their best without compromising Torah standards.
