When taking a look back at both Jewish history and Jewish tradition, one is able to witness remarkable changes not only in how we live on the practical level, but also in how tradition has evolved to better match technological or social advancements. Perhaps, this understanding can be best appreciated when analyzing the changing role of the Jewish woman in her greater society – while still strictly adhering to Halacha (Jewish law) and norms of privacy and modesty.

Even more so, this trend can potentially be understood most remarkably when we look at modern Israeli society and how it has changed in a very short period.
