By Doree Lewak. No skin is allowed to be shown — even summer legs and feet must be clad in pantyhose. And yet, when she decided to surprise her husband on his birthday earlier this year, she gifted him with pictures from a sexy boudoir photo shoot, in which she provocatively poses in nothing more than a sheer white shirt and sky-high heels. Boudoir photo shoots, traditionally popular among the secular set, are now a growing trend in Orthodox communities. Lea , who typically photographs weddings, says that boudoir bookings for the Hasidic community in Flatbush, Brooklyn, now account for 35 percent of her overall business — she currently juggles around 40 such shoots a year, up from just a handful when she started three years ago.

Consideration of Jewish women's lives and experiences during the Holocaust became a priority only late in the 20th century. Scholars focused on women's roles as homemakers, wives, breadwinners, supporters and resistors, with little, if any, attention paid to their reproductive or sexual lives. Many considered that the Rassenschande laws shielded Jewish women from the worst horrors of rape and sexual abuse leading to little investigation of this issue. Women were reluctant to speak of such intimate events, and researchers were hesitant to ask about them for fear of causing further hurt. Concern for the sensationalizing of women's experiences also inhibited investigation of this aspect of women's lives. Significant acts of emotional, sexual and physical abuse of women, were, however, perpetrated by the Nazis and others against men and women, Jews and non-Jews, including humiliating nudity, rape and physical abuse.
