Leah Lighting Candles Heeb August 2, 2011 Culture 16 Although no longer hasidic, Leah Kleim still lights candles every Friday night. Lighting candles on Friday night is a traditional practice for Jewish women. Photo courtesy of Mo Gelber. What do you think? 16 Responses H. Goldman August 2, 2011 very nice !

Reply Carla Buchinger August 4, 2011 wow Reply Jason August 5, 2011 Very generic lacking of style and taste, Leaning on Obscenity to gain riveting taste… Lacking of Talent.. Reply JBHoren August 5, 2011 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). Thanks!

Reply LEAH KLEIM August 7, 2011 I see nothing wrong with bentching licht in the cloths that I was born wearing. Reply Jewboy August 9, 2011 Forbidden to recite a blessing without clothes. Reply Mo August 11, 2011 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. Reply Jonathan B. Horen August 12, 2011 @Leah: I also think it’s a fabulous picture. Why don’t you go ahead and frame it, then blow ME? (up) Reply Pinchas Dovid November 20, 2012 What do I think ? You don’t want to know what I think ? Reply Paul Besterman November 20, 2012 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. Reply Paul Besterman November 20, 2012 Other than when forced upon us.
