|BB, not Jewish, what a waste|
My friend Hipstermom wrote this post about her headscarf saga over the years. When you think about it, it's a huge commitment to never go out without covering your hair. And in a hot climate like Israel, the summer brings its own challenges.
In the fb discussion that followed, I posted a picture of the beautiful Natalie Portman, who happens to be Jewish and married but does not cover her hair all the time. She's wearing an exquisite headscarf creation in that perfectly groomed, porcelain complexion way that only Hollywood and Photoshop can achieve. "Not fair!" cried Hipstermom, and rightly so.
As I teach a class of mature students in a religious college in Jerusalem, I thought I'd offer some examples of how real women do the cover up (with their permission). Bear in mind that these are women with several children, full time jobs, doing a part-time degree, and they cover their hair every day like this. Personally, I think it's pretty impressive.
I couldn't manage it myself...
