Jewish Women's Hair Covering

Answered by Anna of Domestic Felicity on blogspot - newly and joyfully married, living in Samaria:
A question from a reader: "I wonder why you wear a head covering now that you are married? Is it a Jewish tradition or is it for religious reasons?"

If you have questions about the tradition of married Jewish women covering their hair, please read her candid and plain answers, from the example of scripture, from reasoning, and for the purpose of modesty and a sign of being married. She even answers the question of certain women who cover their own hair with wigs, as is a tradition in some places. I've always appreciated reading articles on "Domestic Felicity", as this young woman struggled to learn of and live in the "old ways". Please click here and visit the article: "Why I cover my hair."
