Dress Code for Parents and Visitors

Email sent to parents 8 June 2016

 

One of the hallmarks of Jewish behaviour is modesty of dress.  As a community school, our Jewish ethos is pivotal to school life and is dependent not only on the teaching of Jewish knowledge, but also in the way we conduct ourselves.

In order to create an atmosphere of tolerance and respect it is vital that parents and visitors adhere to the following :

  • Men must have their head covered at all times.
  • All women must wear skirts of knee length (or 2” above is acceptable).
  • Trousers may not be worn. Maxi skirt should be worn in order to cover trousers.
  • Short sleeves may be worn, ensuring underarms are covered, no cap sleeves.
  • Low neck lines may not be worn, either in front or back of garment. Ensure it is not lower than 4 fingers from the collar bone.

 

We expect the father of a child at NRPS to attend Shabbat Services at a Synagogue, and to attend regular Shiurim.

KASHRUT – Separation of milk and meat  Following a Kashrut Authority.
