Family Awards Tznius Dressed

A new award in memory of Shayna Bracha Borevitz OBM just might surprise you the next time you are walking on Kingston Avenue.

By COLlive Reporter

You may be on your way to pick your son up from the school bus tomorrow, shopping for Shabbos next week, or wishing a friend Mazal Tov at her wedding tonight; and you may just become the winner of the Shayna Bracha Award.

The Shayna Bracha Award Program, launched a short five months ago, has quietly been touching the hearts of women and girls in Crown Heights.

In a passionate email from a recipient of the award, COLlive learned about the program. The woman was clearly moved and wanted to share the experience with the greater Crown Heights community.

In an interview with Chaim and Tzameret Borevitz, COLlive was told about the project they launched in memory of their dear daughter Shayna Bracha Borevitz OBM.

The motivation for this program, they said, started when the family sat shivah for their daughter after her passing from an illness in December of 2011.

"During the shivah for our daughter, we heard so many stories from women and girls who were inspired by Shayna. They spoke of her steadfast emunah and bitachon. Her incredible ahavas yisroel, hiskashrus, and simcha."

"We also heard over and over again that she dressed so stylish and beautiful," said her mother Tzameret. "And she was always so tznius at the same time. We heard stories from women and girls about how Shayna inspired them to be tznius."

The following is an excerpt of an email they received during Shayna's shiva:

"Shayna was just awesome. Plain and simple. She was gorgeous, yet completely and constantly tznius. Shayna had this elegance to her. Just meeting her, I knew she was different than the average person I had ever met. She was holy, and she was special. At one point when I was in 9th grade and Shayna was a senior, I was sitting with her on a Bnos Menachem shabbaton, and she told me something I will never forget. After complimenting her that she was gorgeous and her complimenting me that I was cute, she said to me, 'tznius should not be 'hard,' like FINE, I'll pull down my skirt that extra inch because I MUST. Be tznius because it's beautiful, because you know it's right.' It made tznius a million times easier for me."

When Chaim related some of the stories to a friend after the shloshim, his friend challenged him to do something about tznius in her memory.

"Right away I started thinking of how I could create a program that would somehow recreate Shayna's positive and original approach," said Chaim. "It was also important to me that the message would combine beauty and tznius together. For Shayna, both attributes were extremely important."

With this in mind, Chaim and Tzameret created the "Shayna Bracha Tznius & Beautiful Award."

The award, given out by volunteers to women and girls for dressing tznius and beautiful in Crown Heights, is both an attractive certificate proclaiming, "You are Tznius & Beautiful," and a gift certificate from one of the neighborhood businesses.

Mrs. Borevitz said that she instructs the volunteers to follow the tznius criteria published by the Rabbonim. She added that, "with the inyan of beauty, we are not, chas v'shalom, judging styles and labels. We are trying to award people that are obviously making an effort to look nice, while keeping the laws of tznius."

The program currently gives out awards to girls from the age of bas mitzvah and up, with the hope of expanding to include lower elementary school students too. The award's team of volunteers has given out over 100 prizes and expects to reach 200 awards by Gimmel Tammuz. The team now gives out approximately 60 prizes per month.

Winners shared that they were impressed by the award's way of conveying the message of tznius in such a positive way. During the first week of the program, they heard comments like:

"I always wished we'd have something like this in our community. Thanks for such a wonderful program."

"I feel so humbled to be receiving this award."

"This is the most inspiring thing I have ever heard of in my life."

With no exception, the award has made every recipient happy. Many said they were, "really touched." One winner was so touched that she was moved to tears. Some winners knew Shayna and felt especially honored to get her award.

Experiencing the program's impact first hand, some winners have asked to become volunteers themselves, while other winners have donated money. Organizers say they've heard through the grapevine that teachers that have won the award talk about it in their classes. They use it as a lesson--not just for the importance of tznius, but also as an example of the effect of emphasizing people's positive qualities.

The effect of the program is not limited to the winners of the awards themselves. One teacher who won shared the experience with some of her students. Excited by the idea, the students planned to dress tznius around school and on Kingston Avenue with the hope of winning an award themselves.

"Hearing such feedback keeps us motivated, knowing that this is just what Shayna would have wanted," said Chaim, as he shared some of his favorite stories. "One mother won the award while shopping with her ten-year-old daughter. When she won, she turned to her daughter and said, 'Now are you proud of Mommy?' Another mother told Mrs. Borevitz that she had one daughter who was especially challenged with tznius. After she was married for a while, she took it upon herself to start dressing more tznius. When she was given the award one day, she immediately shared the experience with her mother. She said she felt like Hashem was telling her that He recognizes her efforts."

Yet another winner shared her experience with the organizers: she had bought a new skirt, but wasn't exactly sure if it passed as tznius. One morning she planned to wear it, then changed her mind for a more tznius skirt. When she won the Shayna Bracha Award on Kingston that day, she knew why, and hasn't worn that other skirt at all. She also said it was so nice to know that people really noticed her efforts to be tznius.

To enable the women and girls of our community to share their thoughts and feelings about this project, the Shayna Bracha Awards team recently launched a website, www.shaynaawards.com. The site is filled with content, including many stories illustrating Shayna's remarkable personality and amazing accomplishments.

The program is partially sponsored by local businesses. Graphic Designer Mushky Ginsburg sponsored her time to design the award. Zev Cadaner of The Print House kindly donated the printing.

The brilliance of Shayna borevitz!!!!
My name is Mordechai and Shayna inspired me every week in 770...You see my mashpia is Rabbi Chaim Borevitz....when i met him in 770 on a weekly basis, on shabbos.....Rabbi Borevitz learn't with me various topics while we were waiting to daven but more importantly he would tell me stories of his daughter, Shayna...How she was teaching many young woman in crown heights and in college while not well...she never quit for one minute, she only cared about others and teaching them the best parts of judaism....I was so inspired by Shayna that i even sponsored some of her classes at times....I will always remember what a unique and inspiring young woman she was...may her inspiration and life carry on even after her passing.....thru this wonderful program may it grow and grow from crown heights to all parts of the world...Shayna, you will be missed and now your name and lifes work will live on....Thank u Rabbi and Rebbetzin Borevitz!!!!

Wonderful idea! I'm so glad her parents chose something that will increase the actual observance of Torah and Mitzvos, instead of writting a sefer torah! Ha Maiseh hu ha'ikar.

B'Zchus Nashim Tzidkaniyot....
HOW BEAUTIFUL! YISHAR KOCHACHEM!

Always wondered how if we believe that Moshiach is to come at any moment - will we greet him if not in the most royal way?
Thank you for giving true meaning and respect to the words "Kan Tziva Hashem Es HaBracha"!

May Hashem answer all prayers in the merit of righteous women - and we will see the real BEAUTY and BLESSING - her name says it all - Shaina Bracha - may she be a true Meilitzat Yosher!
The Rebbe is surely smiling.........

kol Hakovod,
I am happy to see some thing positive in a positive way, There are out there so many good people, it is a shame that we only relize it after there passing, as we just saw with the passing of a great person last week who was so unassuming and yet touched so many people in a positive way, so let us just keep doing positive things and this will hasten the coming of Moshiach now.
(6/6/2013 5:58:49 AM)

To those out there who are considering donating another sefer torah to a shul who has one already
Would you not agree that a project like this (encouraging neighbors to keep the torah) is money better spent?

May the neshama have a aliya in the zchus of this project.
(6/6/2013 7:29:09 AM)

Monsey NY -Changed my attitude
I left Crown Heights in 2007 because I wanted to raise my children in an environment exhibiting the right values, the values the Rebbe taught us, Torah true values.

This is a breath of fresh air, i sorely hope this is the start of something huge a new tipping point towards restorring the traditional grace and dignity bnos yisroel were known for for milenia

may Hashem bless all those involved in raising jewish pride in a communit of such good people who need chizuk, as we do.

out of towner
I am so glad to finally read that someone is doing something in a positive way about tznius instead of putting down those who are having a hard time being tznius. The positive way the Borovitz family is influencing those in Crown Heights about tznius is very inspiring., a remarkable way to honor the memory of their daughter, who I did not know but from what I read, was a true bas melech. Do you have any good ideas to inspire girls & ladies in out-of-town communities? What is a positive way schools have found to encourage girls with the concept of tznius? Can the web site also have the halachos of tznius, including what the Rebbe said for married women to wear sheitels, or questions and answers about tznius?

The epitome of beauty
She is the epitome of beauty - and not just skin-deep, but you can see it literally through her eyes, soul-deep. Her family and friends who started this in her honor are doing the community a huge chessed. But most importantly BEchessed. Instead of berating young girls for oft-misplaced priorities or lack of recognition for the importance and beauty of tznius, they are using the ever-powerful force of positive reinforcement. And I have no doubt that the success of this endeavor is not simply being powered by it's positivity, but mostly by the special neshama of beautiful Shayna in whose honor it was started. What a fitting and meaningful tribute.

Thank you
While visiting NY I received one of the rewards. It is so nice to see that people in Lubavitch are finally working from the inside out and not only focusing on bringing others closer to Yiddishkeit.

Positive
My friend recieved this award and it is true she dresses very nicely and very tzius too. She was very touched by it and it encouraged her alot, especially when it is sometimes disheartening to see the way people dress on the streets....this is such a positive way to bring the message out...what a great project in Shayna's merit and memory

I was Touched
It felt really good to receive this award!! I am putting a lot of effort into being more tznius and have recently made hachlatos regarding wearing my sheitel even when just putting my kids on the bus. It isn't an easy thing and I feel like my hard work was recognized. Thank you!

A proud mother
My daughter was actually stopped on Kingston Ave and given one if these gifts. Totally random. It really made her day!!! It's the most beautiful program I've encountered in a long time!

Amazing
Got one of these the other day from a volunteer walking down Kingston and am still blown away by the idea. Much hatzlacha to the family and friends of Shayna, you're doing an amazing job of bringing zechus to her name and to Crown Heights with this project!!

At a time that our community really needs this type of Segula from above!

this is a role model for all of yiddisheit.
We should adopt this approach to all aspects of chinuch boys or girls. It the most effective way. All other approaches failed. Positive positive positive. A mechanech for 28 years. Hatzlocho

Our dear Rebbeh singled out this special mitzvah
As essential to the safety and wellbeing of ones self, family and community!

Along with checking Mezuzos and Tefilin annually
The Rebbeh echoed what chazal warn about Tznius, only the Rebbeh emphasized the POSITIVE rewards and blessings that are triggered by careful adherence to this essential Mitzvah

The Rebbeh tended to avoid mentioning the negative warnings stated in Zohar and Chazal, perhaps because "Yemin mekareves" is more effective than "Smoil Docheh"

Kohl hakavod for this positive campaign! Way to go! My wife and her friends found it to be tasteful and classy

Moshiach now!

This is such a wonderful program
I am so happy that this program was launched, thinking out of the box for a positive and insiring approach to Tznius! It makes you look out for and notice all the good around you! Yasher Koach and keep up the wonderful work!!!
May we be Zoche to the Geulah NOW!!!

Do the math
150 Facebook likes (each Facebook page has hundreds of friends) = this is inspiring countless readers world wide,

As the Rebbe highlighted many times, "Bizcha noshim tzodkoniyos asidim lehigoel" may this great Mitzva campaign finally bring the complete redemption "l'einei bosor"!

Woooowwww
I am amazed!! This is such an incredible idea!! Seriously - this should break through all the barriers and bring Moshiach so we can just see Shayna again!!!

Beautiful Idea!!
Almost more inspiring than the concept is reading all these positive comments!! I'm sure Shayna is so proud of all of us!! :)

I had no idea you lost your daughter, was so sorry to read this but nothing can be as comforting to a mother as the good you've created as a result. Yasher Koach

Pained to hear of the tragedy and touched to read of the reaction and its success. Im sure the reaction is exactly what the Rebbe wants: tznius bsimcha! Sh' ykutzu vyrannu!!!
