Awesome tee-shirts!!

From Rotem Gear

Those of you who are members of my Facebook fan page saw recently that I posted a photograph of myself wearing an awesome t-shirt. (Photo below).

This is a fun tee shirt. The word it says on it is a Hebrew word, Malach, which means angel. Wearing it around my religious neighbourhood where most of the Jews read Hebrew certainly gained me some interesting looks but also some giggles and winks, and a few pointed fingers. Of course my friends told me they all know I am no angel, which I guess makes it even funnier. And of course, it has the long sleeves, so it is tzanuah. <GRIN> Just to note, it washes really well, and does not need ironing. So it’s low maintenance, unlike me ;) .

If you want to be noticed too you must go over to Rotem Gear’s website. She has the most amazing tee shirts in all different styles. Plenty of Jewish tees – obviously my favourite section, but she also has Asian, Vintage, Kids stuff, and Seasonal tees -  for occasions like Valentine’s day and St Patrick’s Day. I love the Funny and Odd section – totally hysterical. You can find something for everyone. Plus these are tees that you will not find anywhere else. Totally unique.

I met Jean Roth, the brains and the beauty behind Rotem Gear, on Twitter. She has lived in the States, in Japan and in Israel. She has an energy and upbeat vibe to her, and that comes out in her tees. Visiting her site is like going to an online multicultural bazaar, where there are all different flavours to choose from.

Her awesome products have been featured online, on TV and in print. Click here to see the wide variety of places that have showcased Rotem Gear. Jean also has a great blog called Full DisClothesure which I love – check in to see what’s new in Jean’s world. (Although I still have no idea who or what the kraken is).

Honestly, I wish I could order most of the tees that are on this site. Just not this one. I don’t think my mum would approve… ;) !

So go on, do yourself a favour, and hop on over there. You won’t be sorry.

    Some rabbis rule that part of tznius is *not* being noticed, not drawing attention to oneself with clothing that is very different from the rest of the tzibbur. This applies to both men and women, and would include large written words across an area where the opposite gender should not be staring.

    ooooh, looks like ya getting some mussar over there hadassa. I guess the tee you bought me is okay because the words are on the back of the shirt, right?

  6. Non believer – as per my understanding, part of tznius (beyond just the clothing restrictions) is not calling attention to yourself in any way…in which case none of us should be in the blogosphere at all, because that’s exactly what we’re doing here…calling attention to ourselves. Everything about us as people calls attention in one way or another. The fact that I cover my hair in an area where people do not cover their hair calls attention to me. Does that mean I shouldn’t do it? No. I think we just have to be careful with how far we go with certain things, otherwise we wouldn’t be able to do anything at all.
