Women who are datiot* cover their hair once they get married because in their communities, married women's hair is considered erva (nakedness).

*I'm not sure if Agam, being Israeli, understands the difference between Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform so I'm leaving this word untranslated.

it's the first one . The rest gave themselves the easiest to evade duties.

I do not see a problem with what I wrote. A woman must put headgear to be modest. .
the reform Judaism has made up .
Your reply is the typical Israeli answer I expected, which is precisely the reason I didn't translate datiot.

I find Israeli secular Jews to be fascinating creatures. On the one hand, they're as non religious as they can be. On the other hand, they davka would never step foot in a Reform/Conservative. Maybe Agam can tell us why.

Then you have absolutely no understanding of Israeli Judaism compared to American Judaism.

So why are Israelis so unexcited by reforming our religion?

But they are. Israel is becoming less Orthodox everyday. They may not use the words Conservative & Reform, but if one lists the tenets of them you get Israels version of it simply called Secular/Traditional which is simply not religious.



FWIW in Israel
ultra-Orthodox (haredi), Modern Orthodox (dati), traditional (masorati), and secular (hiloni).

Orthodox is the first and real all the rest made up By people to ease their debt .They are the biggest sinners!

reform there is not such a thing .
They do not obey the great generation. And this is the biggest sin . I'm sorry Your faith is worthless.
