As an Orthodox Jew I do indeed try to follow the laws in this book. Let Mr. Zipperer visit my community and he will see many people with a "foot and a half of hair" hanging from their temples. These side curls are called "payos" and they are worn to follow the Biblical command not to cut the corners of one's beard. I also follow the command not to wear a garment with mixed wool and linen (not any mixed fibers as Mr. Zipperer mistakenly claims), and I make use of a local testing service to verify that my clothing is "kosher." Finally, couples in my community do separate during menstruation and are joyously reunited after a spiritual purification procedure afterward. One woman said she feels like a new bride every month!
