Finally Hollywood has taken on a chassidic minhag and we don't mean holding a Suedos Moshaich on Pesach. Us Weekly reports that the new look, dubbed “Urban Amish” –that is not shaving but wearing expensive clothing — is the hot style this season at the Sundance Film Festival. You actually don't have to goto Colorado to get this look, try walking down 770 or Pico Robertson in LA and check the couture threads on some of these holy hockers. It is also the “I-went-to-Israel-I needed-something-that-makes-me-look -diferent-aside-from-balding” look.
FYI – chassidic minhagim do exist in Hollywood – Kate Hudson waited till 3 years old to give her son an upshern (haircut).She explains, “I'm part-Jewish, Hasidic Jews – they don't cut their kids hair until they're three. “I'm not very religious, but it's actually kind of beautiful, they compare the men to a tree and trees don't bear fruit for three years.” Holy Goldie Hawn has taught her daughter well!
