A jew and a muslim
Many think that the female muslim headscarf, the hijab, is something originally muslim. Actually, just like many other things in Islam, it is borrowed from Judaism. The jewish hijab is called the Tichel. After the wedding ceremony, Orthodox Jews believe that women should only show their hair to their husbands.
The Jewish Tichel:

"The Striking Similarities Between Muslims And Jews You Never Realized
For two groups of people who are often seen as enemies in a political sense, Jews and Muslims actually have so much in common.
There's more that unites Muslims and Jewish people than divides them. Have you ever realized these beautiful similarities the people of each faith have?
1. Covering Hair
Both Muslim and Jewish women cover their hair for modesty reasons, just a little differently. Often, Muslim women wear a hijab, while Jewish women wear a head scarf or a wig called a sheitel.
While the way Muslims and Jews pray is somewhat different, it's actually not all that far apart. Muslims pray five times a day, and Jews pray three. All Jews around the world pray in Hebrew, and all Muslims around the world pray in Arabic. Both wear a "kippah" on their heads. Muslim and jewish males are both circumcised. They both reject pork and both must eat religiously approved food - kosher in the case of jews, and halal in the case of muslims.
3. Being semitic
The term Semitic refers to people who speak the Semitic languages, such as Hebrew and Arabic, among others. Many Muslims and Jews, by being Semitic, tend to have very similar physical traits.
4. The language:
The language of Jews, Hebrew, and of Muslims, Arabic, are so similar that often people who aren't familiar with either can't tell them apart. Above is the word shalom in Hebrew, and salaam in Arabic, which can be translated to anything from hello, peace, welcome or goodbye."
You think that the burka is only a muslim thing? Well, there is a jewish sect where the women wear full burkas. And no one in Israel is stopping them from doing that. No one bans the jewish burka, also called the frumka. These women are not muslims. These are jewish women.
