Reader's Review: Humorous and Spiritual Account of Hair Covering Traditions

"Upon arriving in Israel, I realized that here in the holy land, most married, Jewish women actually do cover their hair. I was thrilled! For almost as long as I had fussed about my hair, I had also wanted to marry. Now I had another good reason to do so - marriage would provide an answer for the endless question, what do I do with my hair?" ~Devorah Israeli

Traditional Judaism expects married women to cover their hair, except in front of their husbands and other women. In modern society this custom and religious observance has been widely challenged. This book explores the customs and history of this practice and gives voice to people around the world who have varied feelings on hair covering. Some women shave their heads, wear wigs and others wear various head coverings for different situations. The glossary of terms also helps to understand the various head coverings.

"It makes me feel honored, responsible, respected.
Though it was at first glance an idea I rejected."
~Julie Hauser

Whether you cover your hair for religious reasons or have always been curious about this topic, this book has many answers for the observant and the observer. Lynne Schrieber has collected a variety of essays from various contributors, making this one of the most interesting, spiritually emotive and unique books I've read lately.

Hide and Seek takes a topic one might assume to be oppressive and makes it feel very freeing in the way you would feel free by loving God and keeping his commandments. Lynne Schrieber effectively unveils this topic in a serious of beautiful essays.
