Ever wanted to find out what an orthodox Jew believes but were afraid to ask?

Buzzfeed has just released a video entitled ‘Orthodox Jews Answer Commonly Googled Questions.’

Questions include ‘what do orthodox Jews believe?’, ‘Why do Jewish men wrap their arms?’ and ‘Why do orthodox Jewish women cover their heads?’

In the video, orthodox Jews also bust myths with one of the featured figures saying: “Kosher food isn’t blessed by a rabbi, is often a misconception that people have.”

The guests also answer questions about Shabat and whether Jews marry their cousins. The video also touches on the dating culture and social norms in the orthodox community.
