Episode 5: "Jewish Hair"

Summer's coming, and here at the Jewish Women's Archive, we're thinking about…hair. Curly, Jewish hair. The kind that turns to frizz in summer weather. And we're not the only ones—thousands of people every week visit our seven year old blog post on the topic. In this roundtable edition of Can We Talk, we explore curly, wavy, frizzy hair and its deeper cultural and historic significance for Jewish women.
