My community awoke this morning to the conspicuous addition of flyers, taped to nearly every tree along the streets, declaring that Rav Elyashiv has said that sheitel-wearing is assur. As reported by my husband who actually took the time to read these signs, one man asked Rav Elyashiv if he should divorce his wife for wearing her sheitel, to which the Gadol replied, "Don't divorce her, but try to convince her to stop."
