You do not seem to mention the Jews or Israel in this article? The Torah of Moses was written by Moses and Jewish prophets; which the Christians call 'old Testament'/ the Christian 'new Testament seems to have been written down mostly by Greeks, though I don't know. Religious Jewish women wear head scarves, and the bride wears a veil, for the marriage ceremony. Moses is mentioned in the Koran of Islam, but you don't seem to remember that the Jews wrote the Torah, the Bible? There is also a veiled 'prostitute' mentioned in the Jewish Bible; when Judah's daughter-in-law disguises herself as a prostitute, when Judah fails to give her his youngest son for custom of yevamos (leveriate marriage).
