SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A billboard showing model Bar Refaeli wearing only a blanket was replaced with a more modest photo.

The Fox clothing company on Monday changed two giant billboards along a major Tel Aviv highway following complaints from the fervently Orthodox community.

The billboards had featured the scantily clad Israeli supermodel on a bed with Israeli "Survivor" star Noam Tor. They were exchanged for photos of the couple in winter clothing. 

Some fervently Orthodox groups had threatened to boycott the popular clothing chain.
