    Very generic lacking of style and taste, Leaning on Obscenity to gain riveting taste… Lacking of Talent..

    I’m a heavily tattooed Jewish guy — a yeshiva bochur, no longer actively practicing — and Leah Kleim has just made my Erev Shabbos (such as it is, here in Fairbanks, AK).

    I dont care what these wanna be critics say, I think this a great photo which makes you think and therefore contains talent.

    to those who say it is forbidden to say a blessing without clothes, think about the bris ceremony. The rabbi and the congregation say blessings while the baby is naked.

    @Leah: I also think it’s a fabulous picture. Why don’t you go ahead and frame it, then blow ME? (up)

    Only in America with it’s disregard for tradition and respect could this happen, Good or Bad ? I honour the 3000 year old heritage of my people which as I am sure you all are aware of does not include Tattoos.
