I should never have doubted the versatility of the Yiddish language. It has a name for everything! Here’s a recently acquired gem:
SHPITZEL: A partial wig consisting only of a front piece, typically covered by a small pillbox hat*
Who would ever have imagined that there existed an actual name for such a specific hair-covering style favoured by such a specific group of chareidi (ultra-Orthodox) women?
