Rav Elyashev assurs most sheitels

Anyone ever hear of a on-line newspaper named Hamercaz? They are reporting that R' Yosef Sholom Elyashev recently stated categorically that the typical Sheitels worn by most Orthodox women are forbidden. They also include a link to a audio link.

Anyone who hears about this for sources other than the Daas Torah blog please drop me a comment.

until men start wearing wigs and hats and scarves 24/7 -they have no right to comment on anything related to those women who do, the minhag is like a chasid wearing 18th century garb like a becheshe, has nothing to do with Torah - it's an affectation, a custom, and is oppresssing to women who tend to go bald from wearing wigs
