Hide and Seek: Jewish Women and Hair Covering
One of the few books to consider the very personal, yet also public, matter of married Jewish women covering their hair, Hide and Seek explains the law, considers the customs surrounding the practice, and includes the voices of women from around the world who are moved by the nature of this challenging observance. The book includes legal and sociological perspectives of the practice, citing relevant texts and rabbinic discourse, as well as the history, tradition, and customs of Jewish communities from around the world. Twenty-four personal essays from women on this sensitive issue lend a very personal face to the debate.
