The most precious possession that belongs to Klal Yisrael is the Jewish neshamah. Where is this precious neshamah formed? Inside the body of the Jewish mother.

Rav Pinkus relates that the mother is therefore the most valuable asset to the Jewish People.


The more valuable something is, the more protection it requires. Therefore, the whole purpose of the mitzvah of tzniyus, explains Rav Pincus, is to protect and guard the Jewish woman – who is the Jewish People's most precious commodity!
