Israel - Have the “Taliban women” invented a new strict modesty rule? According to testimonies received by Ynet’s local portal, Mynet, the radical group of ultra-Orthodox women dressed in cloaks has begun wearing a cloth-covered tube on their heads in order to conceal their human figure.

A source close to the group reveals that “the stricter members have decided that the veil is not enough, as the form of their face can still be seen. The solution found is a sort of pipe in the form of a funnel, which they wear on their heads under the veil.”

Who these women are are anybody's guess as their faces are covered. They're a group of balei teshuva women who are being frummer than the pope. Probably some are mentally unstable.

As if the chareidi women don't already have enough meshugaas to deal with, these new chumrahs take tzinius to new absurd extremes. When we look at photographs and paintings of the wives of many gadolim and tzadikim from the alte heim from the 1800s and 1900s we see normal conservatively dressed women. Today, however, women make themeselves look like a bunch of cartoon like figures in pursuit of non-existant halachic requirments.

All this mishugas is the result of a generation of Jews who don't work, but place maximum value on being more "frum" than the next person. We need mentchlichkeit, not frumkeit. Because of the vast waste of the current generation, we are starting to resemble the ignorant muslims.

Tznius means not attracting attention to themselves (does not count wearing long sleeves in the summer, which while odd people have been known to do for sun protection). However, making yourself look ridiculously different than the average frum person attracts attention. Dog bites cat isn't news. The strange stuff makes the headlines- which just proves the point that these people are not following the most basic halacha of tznius!!

The problem with them being frum is that most times it is against the husbands wishes etc

Tznius is about being a dignified and refined person that does not draw the wrong type of attention to oneself. When I see these women on the street, you cannot imagine how many stares they attract, even in Meah Shearim. This is the opposite of true tznius.

This isn't "more Tzeniusdig"; it is beyond all Jewish bounds. Xians worship a multiple deity, but you wouldn't "admire" them (hv"h) for being more frum than us Jews, who settle for One. Muslims and Mormons forbid alcohol -- are we less frum and, therefore, less admirable than them because we merely insist that it be kosher?
I'm not making fun of these women for a moment. We need to look hard at ourselves and ask why their views didn't meet resistance for so long.

#24 Troll wrote "Gerrer women wear Jackie-O pill box hats on top of their Sheitels"
Hey, get your facts straight - Gerrer women do not wear hats they wear sheitels and that's it. Not that I have a problem with other Chassidim who do wear hats, I just want to set the record clear.

#20 - Wisedude wrote "We need mentchlichkeit, not frumkeit."
That sentence is wrong for two reasons. 1) There is no contradiction between being a mentch and being frum, as Orthodox Jews we need to be both. It's not one or the other. Most of the people I know have imbued more or less both of these traits. 2) "Frumkeit" has nothing to do with this story, this is "Extremism", I see this mistake being made by posters over and over. Guys, get it straight, Frumkeit and Extremism are two different things!

Jewish. And this is not about women wanting to be frum while their husbands don't They are a cult started by some "rebbitzen" and are married to very frum men but have taken it to this extreme. They have been condemned by most of the Gedolei including the Eida Haredit. They even make their young daughters dress like this.
BTW, that's not a suitcase. It's a shuk schlepper for carrying groceries and we don't always have a choice of color. Should we ask Louis Vuitton to design some for us?

I do not understand which part of Jewish law prevents a person from exercising a right to express thoughts that may not necessarily agree with thosem of the "gedolim".

And everyone knows that suitcases are used to pack clothing and that might lead someone to think about her clothing. Better she should use a body bag to carry her stuff.

Wait, body bag could remind someone of the word body. Better she should pack her stuff in a briefcase.

Wait, briefs are a kind of underwear. Better she should stay away from briefcases too.

Nap sack is out (people take naps in bed). Garment bag is out (garments are used to cover bodies).

Can't use a pocket book. Who knows what kinds of terrible things are found in books.

Maybe she should just wear everything she owns. Who would ever know?

You could well imagine how chhlov akim would have been prevelant without the Satmars. Imagine also how the litvish MEN would have dressed, perhaps in their sharp gray suits and sharp grey hats they wore in ALL the yeshivas of the Lita between the wars. Now think about womens' wear; the spread of sheitels and modest dress. There was no such thing as sheitels in the Lita or Russia.
IT IS A HISTORICAL FACT THAT EXTREMEISM RAISES THE LEVEL OF OBSERVANCE OF THE LESS EXTREME. It is so also by the Muslims. Because of the Taliban the less observant became more observant muslims.

Every new minhag is started by someone, no one wear streiml 500 years ago untill someone started it and now it a must in chassidim, there were no "Freezers" for Yeshive Boys 25 years ago, now its normal. Let them do whatever they think is right as long they are not trying to force everyone.

Why do you think that, somehow, wearing a black suit is "raising" your level of observance more so than wearing a gray suit? You can be an amoretz in a black suit, just as you can be a tzaddik in a gray suit.

Actually I can imagine that the younger kids of these women growing up in these homes have a shame for their bodies instilled when they are very young. Even if let's say it is not the mom's intention that is what will happen. It is child abuse and if something can be done to prevent this whole meshugas it would be great.

Why is this anybody's business but theirs? Which Gadol said one word against them? The edah charedis is a political party, it is not a person, much less a gadol.

in terms of these women- nebach...is all i can say....their poor husbands and children....all over in the last few parshos we learn about the Imahos- how pretty they were- Sara, Rivka, Rochel, Leah....Sara had to be hidden....When yaakov saw Rochel he saw how pretty she was...Rashi says- her face...im sure they were'nt wearing cones on their head...bec, if they were...why would they hav to be hidden lest the kings and towns folk would want to take them?....just saying....
