Is anyone on here jewish......
im asking this because I'm curious about your religion. I was watching a documentray recently and it was about jewish people and their day to day lives and the different celebrations that they adhere to.
i wanted to ask two things which I was unsure about
1. why do majority of jewish women wear black (correct me if I'm wrong)
2. why do they cover their hair after they are married with a headscarf or a wig.
this is an innocent question, one that I'm curious about so please leave out your sarcasm or worse anti semetic views I'm not interested.

It's exclusive to Orthodox Jews. It has to do with modesty, just like with Muslims, and Christians that cover part of them up. Jewish woman cover their hair to reserve a part of them for their husbands. Watch this video and you'll understand ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6bUAtrnHfU ). The black is again part of modest. Bright colors and patterns attract attention. For someone that is a very strict Orthodox Jew, they may wear only black because it in theory will not draw attention.1
