Would you care to elaborate on your reasoning? I understand that you don't want to be associated with people that act that way, but that is not a way to decide a halachik decision... I believe most people would have no problem if you decided you don't want to wear a sheitelor that it is not required etc. but to disassociate I don't understand. Can you please elaborate.ReplyDelete
"This is why I don't wear sheitels."ReplyDelete
I don't understand - did you formerly wear sheitels until some couple showed up on TV? Or does this couple's appearance retroactively explain your years of non-sheitel wearing?
Wearing a sheitel might or might not be required by halacha or appropriate, but a couple of (alleged) ganeivim showing up on TV doesn't change a thing. And yes, they're hypocrites. But would you say, "Look, Martha Stewart kept a clean house and a dirty pocketbook, that's why I keep sweep my house." Yes it's hypocritical to do what she did, but that doesn't justify my decision about how often to sweep.

I haven't worn sheitlach regularly in years, though I still have one or two that I have been known to haul out for Very Special Occasions.
Literally - this was tongue in cheek. I suppose it sounds like an assertion that sheitlach make one dishonest, but seriously, my thoughts were more along the lines of "avoid the sheitel, avoid the dry-cleaning hassles."
Let's just pretend the tichel cut off circulation to my brain, shall we? :-)))
