Reading Rabbi Wiederblank’s massive “Illuminating Jewish Thought: Explorations of Free Will, the Afterlife, and the Messianic Era” There’s a lot of discussion (in some philosophical circles) of whether determinism (which seems accepted) rules out free will.

Mishna Shabbat 6:6 -Jewish women in Arab countries may go out veiled, with a scarf covering their face, and Jewish women in Media may go out with cloaks fastened with stones. (HMMMM-I guess one could argue that the Jewish women came up with these styles independent on host culture?)
