An Orthodox Jewish woman says she constantly receives hate comments because she chooses to wear longer wigs than some in her community, including the rabbis, believe they are too "horny".
Esther Adina Sash, 30, opts to wear a long hair wig, or the same, as they are traditionally known in Hebrew, as part of their Orthodox religion.
Married women who practice orthodox Judaism should use wigs to cover their real hair as a form of modesty.
The mother of two New York children, Esther Adina Sash, 30, chooses to wear a long-haired wig, or sheitels, as they are traditionally known in Hebrew, as part of their Orthodox religion.
Wigs at shoulder height are traditionally what women choose to wear as part of religion.
But Sash, who is the mother of two children from Brooklyn, New York, is among those who prefer wigs that are at least waist-high.
She says that her decision has led her to receive hate messages online and criticism from the rabbis.
"People always say that the more time passes, the sluttier it is," Sash told the New York Post.
Sash said that a rabbi asked him to cut his wig so that he could be a better example for others and thus be spiritually rewarded.

"I was laughing that he thought that hair length has a connection with spirituality," he said.
He said he was once told to "drown in a lake, negatively influencing young girls."
In a recent Facebook photo showing his long wig, Sash said: "Dear enemies, go drown in a bucket of honey, to all others, have a happy and sweet new year full of health, happiness, wealth and blessings! Love, your devout and intrepid Queen Bee.
Sash, who regularly shares photos and videos of her on social media under her nickname FlatbushGirl, is a voice in the Jewish community about women's issues.
He is currently running as district leader in the 45th Assembly District. & # 39;
