Mandatory head covering for women is a topic that has been thoroughly debated throughout the history of Judaism. Some rabbis believe that it is an absolute obligation for a woman to cover her hair in public, while others say that it is a standard of modesty defined by the Jewish community only. The decision to cover one’s hair is based on a combination of law and custom, personal choice, and community identification.
Today, many married Orthodox Jewish women still wear tichels, head-scarfs, for traditional modesty. However there are also many women who cover their hair for a different reason; the tichel has been gaining traction among secular Jewish women, as an empowering symbol of their Jewish and feminine identity. This has caused a huge rise in the popularity of head-scarfs and other similar head-coverings.
