Temple Ready


What is Temple Ready?

The term Temple Ready does not refer to any specific style or cut. It is more of a general reference to any neckline style (including the sleeves) that stands up to the Jewish standards for bridal wear.

In Jewish tradition, the standards for modesty vary, depending on the level of observance of Jewish tradition (Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform temples all hold slightly different views).

Orthodox Jewish Traditions

Orthodox Jewish Temples observe the Jewish traditions to the very strictest letter of the law, which means that the tradition of dressing in modest attire is also strictly observed.

Orthodox traditions of modesty for women's dresses state:

  • The dress must not be low cut at the neck or back
  • The hem of the dress must fall below the knees
  • The sleeves of the dress must cover the elbow

Within these boundaries, sheer fabric does not qualify as appropriate covering, as the skin should not be visible in any way.

Conservative Jewish Traditions

In Conservative Jewish Temples, the level of observance of the Jewish traditions is slightly less strict than the Orthodox traditions.

Orthodox traditions of modesty for women's dresses state:

  • The dress must not be low cut at the neck or back (Same as the Orthodox)
  • The hem of the dress must fall below the knees (Same as the Orthodox)
  • The dress must have sleeves (Unlike the Orthodox, the sleeves aren't required to cover the elbow)

As with the Orthodox Temple's standards for modest attire, skin within these boundaries should not be visible in any way, so sheer fabric does not qualify as appropriate covering.
