"WELL NOW, ISAAC, DON'T BE CAMERA SHY" On their Sabbath, Orthodox Jewish men wear the traditional costume which calls for long black satin coats and fur-trimmed velvet turbans. Usually they are bearded and display a corkscrew curl in front of each ear. Under the coat of the man at left show edges of a black-and-white striped prayer shawl.
