Is it true that Jewish women wear veil?

Often when they marry, yes. It's tradition to thoroughly veil the bride's face & head, if she want's to do that. If you mean a burka, (spelling?) dark scarves that cover the entire head &/or face when out in public, no. These are usu worn by muslim women. Also, many Indian women wear similar head scarves. Usually very colorful, long & flowing. Just over the head, not the face.

Its possible the very orthodox women do so while in temple as well as at weddings and funerals but not in everday life. Thats mainly a muslim tradition.

Not for everyday life, only for a wedding. Many married Jewish women wear wigs, or was coverings though.
