"Chassidim, look what you are wearing on your Head !"


A STREIMEL is made of 24 of those animals (see picture below). I don't know the name of the animal but do you really feel comfortable wearing such a Streimel ?
No, I am not one of those animal protection activists but do so many animals have to be killed for a Streimel ?


  1. do you have nay idea how much holiless comes down onto those who wear shtriemls that cost over ten thousand dollars?

    shame on you to make a joke of such important thing

    Moishe Rabunu never spoke to hahem without first putting on his striemel

    the whole yidishkiet is based on striels

    Moshe Rabbeinu wore a Streimel ???
    I would rather say a turban.:-)

    Furthermore, I think that Holiness is coming down on every Jew. No matter if he wears a Streimel or not.

  3. i was being sarcastic, but u knew that...............

  4. B"H

    I thought so but, on the other hand, it could have been someone from Mea Shearim or Boro Park whose holy Streimel is offended.:-)

  5. miriam, you have a streimel in your house. why are you playing these games?

  6. B"H

    I prefer the animal. It looks cute !

  7. so put it on your head and go outside....muktze on shabbes tho, so save it for the chol

  8. B"H

    You are just killing animals for your Streimel. Be ashamed of yourself !!! :-))))))

  9. I like this kind of postings.

    @ UM

    Some things I cannot put into my German blogs because people wouldn't understand or draw the wrong conclusions.

    I am sorry to say this but that's the way it is.

  11. a people who have suffered throughout the ages should not be contributing to the suffering of any living being, human or animal. it is a shame on all of us that these are worn especially since they are of goy origin from Europe!

  12. Is the animal a fischer,looks alot like a mink.I too think it looks better on the animal.Whats with the absolute perfect combing up it gets.Even flicks.And Im told the furrier colour matches to the new wearers colouring!!!!Getting all a little vain ,don't you think?
