Why though? If they are completely observing what they believe the text to entirely mean ... I don't know. It just sort of sounds to me like mixing up being strictly observant with being behaviorally strict. Like severity=observance.

Our Orthodox rebbetzin holds with a tefach. There are Lubavitchers in our community who cover their hair completely. I wouldn't say that she is LESS observant than them. Just differently so.

Rivka, no offense taken.

I think it's a lot like our Muslim friends have been saying. Especially with Judaism, interpretations are given LOTS of weight. They differ according to community and whose rabbinic authority you subscribe to.
