Old Jewish man. An old Jewish man look at my camera while is walking along the Western Wall public square, in the Jewish Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem.
Long beards and sidelocks, known in Hebrew as “payot”, are worn by some men in the Orthodox Jewish community based on an interpretation of the Torah and the prohibition on shaving the hair with a razor.
Many married Jewish men, particularly members of Hasidic Judaism, wear a fur hat called “shtreimel” during Shabbat, Jewish holidays and other religious festivities.
