A TikTok video comparing the modest swimwear of a Jewish woman and a Muslim woman has gone viral. The video has garnered nearly 500,000 views as of Wednesday.

The video, which was posted the day before, is by the account "That Jewish Family," run by a Hassidic Jewish family that posts daily vlogs on social media.

In the video, the two women find that they have a lot in common when it comes to their dress code at the beach. Both women are shown to cover their hair and wear long sleeves (though Jewish women wear it up until the elbow, whereas Muslims wear it until the hands). Some differences arise when Jewish women can wear a skirt past the knees, whereas Muslim women wear long dresses to the beach.

The video can be seen below:

Towards the end of the video, the two women realize that they have a lot more in common than they initially thought.

Responses: Something in common between Jews and Muslims 

One commenter wrote: "Finally something positive between both religions."

Another person wrote that it makes them "happy when I see unity between different religions and cultures," while another one stated that they "love how educational and respectful this is."
