Mandatory headcovers for women is a topic that has been debated throughout the history of Judaism. Some rabbis believe hair covering is an absolute obligation originating from Moses at Sinai, while others say it is a standard of modesty defined by the Jewish community. The Yiddish word tichel or Hebrew word mitpachat means head scarf. Today, many married Orthodox Jewish women still wear tichels. Some also wear a wig, a practice dating back to 17th Century France. Today, the decision to cover one’s hair is based on a combination of law and custom, personal choice, and community identification. Like regular head scarves, tichel headcovers are available in styles to suit all occasions. At Headcovers, we offer tichels in a beautiful array of solid colors, patterns, and fabrics.
