  1. That was interesting, inspiring and beautiful! Thank you for sharing it with us.

  2. That was absolutely fabulous – eloquent and funky and intelligent and beautiful and captivating. I can’t help but think that it would be more powerful if the beautiful-inside-and-out lady author would have a halachic neckline, just to complete the picture of a woman who truly is powered from the inside.

  3. Love this! I struggle so much with this, living in a community where very few women cover their hair. So inspiring.

  4. Brilliant!

    Dear Chaya,
    Where were you 35 years ago when i was getting married? Wow thank you for posting this.
    I was a beverly hills gal marrying a chassidic jew and the sheitels that were available at a reasonable price looked like mops. I would always find interesting ways to cover my hair with hats or scarves, but in my community the Sheitel was the most accepted and preferred way to cover my hair. I also liked having hair as well i felt more like myself and of course more feminine.
    So many people discuss the halachic reasons for hair covering without the essence of why a jewish Woman or Princess shall i say covers her hair and becomes a Queen.
    Thank You May you go from Strength to Strength

  6. Exceptional!! I want more!!
