    As someone who grew up in a chareidi chassidic environment where we wore robes over our bathing suits even in an all female swim environment, I speak from experience of the serious dangers in such swimming attire. One jump in the pool, the skirt flies straight above your head and covers you but keeps you under water. It is terrifying when it happens and not easy to get out of since your arms are all stuck in the sleeves. TERRIFYING -- Regardless of lifeguard, if noone else in the pool is there to see it and help. Skirts on swimsuits is VERY DANGEROUS. Snaps that may or may not be used is irresponsible -- as a lawyer this is a product I would definitely go after for strict product liability. The frumma who insist on making their daughters swim like this -- are the epitomy of "chassid shoteh."

Why the Jewish establishment won’t condemn the occupation

Unless more U.S. Jews who oppose the occupation become members of established Jewish organizations and donate money, the establishment is unlikely to heed calls of those who want it to condemn the occupation.
