    If you already wear a wig before you’re married, can you call your wig a sheitel?

    Even if the words “wig” and “sheitel” mean the same thing, don’t they have different contexts?

    Thank you 🙂

    Sometimes I wonder…..oh well. No there is no difference. A sheitel is a wig and a wig is a sheitel. The only context is yiddish / english.

    The connotations are different.

    Are you asking….a single girl who decides to wear a wig, must she wear a sheitel after her marriage? (To those who it isnt obvious: I’m, being facetious).

    Thanks RebYidd23, yes you are right… I meant connotations. ☺

    LB – Why would a woman be wearing a wig before she is married? For medical reasons I would assume. Sometimes this would cause her to feel uncomfortable about the whole issue, but I would imagine that once she gets married and has a spiritual reason to be wearing a wig (sheitel is just the Yiddish word for wig), then she would feel proud to be fulfilling the mitzvah and not feel uncomfortable about her medical issue any longer.

    I heard a story of a married woman who refused to cover her hair until she became sick and had to take chemotherapy and ended up losing her hair and started covering her head and continued on after she became better. Sometimes good things come out of difficult situations like this.

    If you put a steak sandwich on your head, can you call it a wig?

    I’ve never really understood steak sandwiches. Steak is generally too chewy for a sandwich.

    Maybe I’ve just never had a good one.

    Where have you had steak sandwiches?

    “I’ve never really understood steak sandwiches. Steak is generally too chewy for a sandwich.”

    Top quality steak isn’t chewy. But in my opinion, chewy meat is healthier. The chewing exercises your teeth and chewing muscles and reminds us that we’re eating an animal that was provided to us by Hashem.

    I should clarify, I have no problem with steak being chewy. Steak is supposed to be at least a little chewy. My point is that the chewiness of steak makes it a bad candidate for sandwiches. When you take a bite of a sandwich, you should be able to bite through the entire thickness of the sandwich with one even bite. You shouldn’t have to bite harder to get through the filling than you would to get through the bread.

    Or maybe you need to try one after 9am.

    Don’t steak sandwiches contain steak sliced extremely thin, to the point of greatly facilitating the chewing process, so much so that the steak is no longer chewy?
