Why do Orthodox women wear wigs – especially if the wig looks even nicer than their hair? Doesn’t that defeat the purpose? In this video we explore the text-based sources for hair covering. It begins with a reference in the Torah, and then is expounded upon in the Talmud.

But what about wigs? When did that begin? In the video, we show when this practice historically started, and why it was accepted by many rabbinic authorities. For the people who assume that wearing a wig is pointless because it makes a woman look too attractive, I would suggest that these people misunderstand what Jewish modesty is about. Tznius is not about looking ugly. Jewish modesty is about keeping certain parts of oneself private. But what if the wig actually improves a woman’s looks? How does that accomplish anything? Watch this video to find out!
