Dress, Fashion & Physical Beauty (Regardless of Gender Attraction!)
- 39 min 37 sec
Most Judaic sources relate to dress, fashions and beauty in the context of positive or negative sexual attraction. Rav Kook relates here to totally (!) different issues relating to these topics, including: the ideal of physical beauty in God's world; society's use of sophisticated beauty and dress as part of man's anthropologically constant evolution & improvement above animalism; self-respect, mutual respect and honor; positive influence and more, which should be harmonized with the cautiousness of the downside of conformism, losing one's individualism and free-will, simplicity, priorities and more.
