Jewish Taliban Girls

These photos published in a haredi forum show the junction Mea Shearim Street / Shivtei Israel. However, I don't think that the two children in the photo belong to Chassidut Toldot Aharon owning the property right next to where the kids walk. I rather assume that the covered Taliban looking girl and her brother belong to the Ba'alei Teshuva movement from Breslov. Those people mainly live in one of the streets across where they also have their own school. 

I have seen you a few girls whose Breslov Ba'al Teshuva mother is raising them by wearing thick scarfs and a bundle of Taliban clothes. There are two young sister in the Nachlaot neighbourhood wearing the same kind of clothing.



  1. In fact untill 500 years ago, even single ladies covered their hair.

    But those talibans are going to far.

    The Talibans cover their entire body. Some even wear gloves.

  3. Women including myself in my community wear a shawl in the winter months but how these girls are dressed takes away from the beauty of dressing tznius.

    There is no reason for dressing like this.

    I guess King David wouldn't like the Taliban dress either.:-))))
