I have nothing else to offer, I’m sorry. But I will come back to enjoy this thread!

I’m not sure if Hasids would come on weddingbee–they’re like a stricter branch of Orthodox–some of my coworkers at my last job were Orthodox Jews….offhand I can tell you that they can’t use electricity on the Sabbath which is Saturday…

Hasids dress the way that all eastern european jews used to dress back in the day–like around the mid 1800’s to pre WWII

The women cover their hair with either a scarf or a wig

 

Idk maybe it would be better if you wiki searched on your own because you are unlikely to encounter Hasidics on weddingbee and most people are like  me, have encountered bits and pieces of info over time but don’t really have the full picture

 

Jehovah’s I’m not sure—again, bits and pieces. No birthdays or halloween–they don’t believe in blood transfusions apparently

I grew up as a Jehovah’s witness. Feel free to ask me anything you want to.

@BellaDee:  Sorry I should have specified it’s the married women who cover their hair

well i know this much from speaking to Orthodox Jews. In their religion they believe that by following the traditions you are surrendering over your life to god. By giving up control and submitting to god they believe they are freeing themselves. It’s a way of incorporating your spirituality into your every day life if you will. For many, it isn’t that they believe that god will strike them  down if they drive on the Sabbath or mix meat and dairy, but that by going out of their way to observe they are making sure that their faith is part of their day to day life. It is not something that they only observe at their house of worship and then go on with their normal lives like everyone else. It also gives them a cultural identity and makes their community more close knit.

There are 613 laws in the Torah that they follow, impossible for them to be listed here.

Idk if I would say that I can fully understand because I’m an atheist–but some of the Orthodox jews that I worked with were agnostic and said it didn’t interfere-even though they didn’t know if there was a god, they said they felt that following thes rules gave their lives purpose
