Succos Repost

I'm too much of a KBS-er to come up with a new torah thought, so I'm reposting the one from last year - Hoshanos and Hakafos.


Also, I was talking to a friend of mine about sheitels. IY"H, I'm going to be wearing one in a few short weeks, but I find that my attitude towards it is that I'm excited to wear a sheitel as a symbol of the fact that I'm married, and nothing else. The main reason I'm excited about it is out of laziness (no more doing my hair :D), not of any type of ruchniyus thing.

So now I'm looking for thoughts. Anyone have any interesting/inspiring thoughts on sheitels? Why do we wear them? What should our attitude be toward them? Links and recommendations for books and articles welcome.

Don't all shout out at once!

Mazal Tov! I think I used to read your blog- but I am not all too active in the blog-osphere too much nowadays. In regards to sheitels- I must say that at first I hated them. I hated looking in the mirror- because yes, no matter how natural it is, it still makes you look different. Older. Different.
But you know what? It is a symbol, you are correct. A symbol that you are married. That you are an eishes eish. That no one but him should see your hair. Its more of a reminder for you btw, than for others. To remind yourself that you are married.
Good luck with everything- and may you have much bracha and hatzlacha and be as happy and shining as you are now always!
And enjoy the wedding- too many kallahs are too nervous to enjoy, and then you will miss it for the rest of your life!
