Organizers of a conference that would sensitize Orthodox wigmakers to signs of domestic abuse are working on rescheduling the Feb. 12 conference, which was postponed following a feature on the event in The Jewish Week. A source said the publicity had caused unspecified complications. The conference was organized by several Jewish organizations with help from the Brooklyn District Attorney's office. Recognizing that Orthodox women have close relationships with the women who style their wigs, it sought to train the wigmakers to counsel abuse victims. Henna White, the Jewish liaison to District Attorney Charles J. Hynes and an authority on Jewish domestic abuse, would say only that "we are picking another date, and this will definitely happen."
