* {{Fridge Brilliance}}: As it is, Yentl doesn't adhere to the strict guidelines of Orthodox Judaism. It's a little-known Orthodox tradition that when one of your parents dies, you don't cut your hair for a whole year. She cuts her hair off ''immediately''. This is more out of necessity than disrespect or outright disregard for halacha, but counts as Fridge Brilliance no less if you're familiar with the more obscure Orthodox bereavement rituals.
