    Im doing a favor to COL because this comment will generate hundreds of angry responses.

    The Sheitlach that women buy are the rolls royces of shetlach. One can buy sheitlach for 50-60 dollars.
    Most Anash dont drive cadillacs or Mecedes . Why the need for 3000.00 sheitlach.
    Let the anger begin.

    This is a company i would want to support, not only do they offer good quality Shaitels at affordable pricing, but they stick to their goal of making sure everyone can afford a shaitel, even if they cant.

    everyone should go buy a shaitel from Elle Shaitels!

    Very nice

    the whole story is beautiful, but the shabbos invitation is very touching. alot of times if someone in a community is new, people are uncomfortable. Here we see someone actually extending themselves, not just their money. thankyou

    so nice, thank you Machon Chana and thank you to the owner of the sheitel company for welcoming the kalla! To the posters mentioning Paula Young, I’m not sure if you are a BT or if you grew up knowing that you would cover your hair, and specifically with a wig. But when you don’t grow up frum, and realize the beautiful mitzvah of covering your hair, it can sometimes be difficult to grasp. Hair really adds to the identity of a person, and I know for myself, who has beautiful hair, covering it with a wig was not easy.… Read more »

    Not mad, just know the quality is far superior. I’ve tried both types of sheitals and the cheaper ones just don’t last… you don’t need to spend thousands and thousands. but to get good quality that will last does cost. You think about wearing it everyday for years, washing, curling for simchas etc.. takes a toll.. need good quality. anyways this was a beautiful gesture. kol hakavod.

    Heartwarming!

    there are very affordable options..

    true it is a beautiful dose of amazing chesed. however, the kallah should know, walking down Utica or Nostrand there are a number of wig shops, yes they are synthetic, but cute and spunky, especially the shorts ones,. not so long ago, I had a chic short shaitel, all synthetic, this was after having a custom and other sheitels $1500+. I think I got more compliments, with the little short one that I paid maybe $120 if that.. such options are doable while looking stylish with pizazz Also I might add, sometimes it takes a while before a woman knows… Read more »

    My daughter and I recently bought Elle Sheitels for a really great price and we love them! The hair seems to be great quality, holds the setting nicely due to their natural body waves and doesn’t get knotty in the back. Elle has a Facebook page and website. I wish them much Hatzlocha !

    To Sheitel or not to Sheitel is the question.
    Guest
    To Sheitel or not to Sheitel is the question.

    In the 1850s or thereabouts, when Sheitels became Jewish fashion statements the Rabbonim of that generation were condemning this new piece of fashion, basically rightly so, as Sheitels do cover the head, but very often enhance the beauty of the wearer, rather than reserve it for her husband’s eyes only. What would they say, if they could see some of the modern, long, flowing items of today??? What used to be regarded as an unacceptable piece of female vanity has become a neccesary part of a tsniusdicke Aishes chayil’soutfit!The idea in the 1850s was that the Rabbonim would let it… Read more »

    beautiful sheitel

    B”H
    A beautiful sheitel (not tichel) is the mark of a ‘bas melech’ and can be worn with pride by every married Jewish woman. It makes a statement to others and hopefully encourages young (and not so young) Jewish women to cover their hair as required. This was the position of the Rebbe for our generation! Nice story of Ahavas Yisroel B”H! Mazol tov and binyan adei ad.

    As lubacitcher chassidim, we have our rebbe, and go by his directives! it is very clear that the rebbes opinion is sheitels… sheitels and only sheitels! Money and tznius are other issues!
