Yeshivah bochers are pale from being indoor studying at their yeshivot. The bronzed Jews are the opposite to this and reaction against this.
In modern Israel, Coastal plain yeshivot in Bnei Brak, Netanya, Ashdod, etc bring busloads of Yeshiva Bochers, to the separate beaches often. But, yes, I the metaphor works. I'm a Ra'anana girl for the past 30 years, and go to the beach to walk on the sand, dip my feet and my body in the Mediterranean. I'm Modern Orthodox, and we all figure it out down there.

Absolutely. I had an aunt or two like shtissels aunt. They all swam at the Gordon Pool. Different times... Halevai

I remember in 1971-1972 you had to go to the post office to make a telephone call and wait your turn.
