Differences It was a cold January night in Brooklyn. I was helping my father provide a sound system for a Jewish high school play. Normally when one thinks of Jewish people, they think that they are just regular people who instead of going to church go to temple. However there are many different types of Jews. The ones my father and I were working for that night were called Hasidic Jews. Every winter my father would have several bookings of equipment rentals for their high school plays. For a long time, I thought that, besides some noticeable differences, they were the same as my Jewish friends in school, but one night, something weird happened.

The women are not allowed to expose their arms or legs and when they are married, their natural hair cannot be seen. The only exception of this was for business.
