Why do we wear Kippahs?

The Kippah is a symbol Yiras Shamayim; the fear and awe of G-d in heaven. The Kippah reminds a person of the presence of G-d watching over man, and in the past the obligation to wear a Kippah only applied when one was mention G-d’s name in a blessing or prayer, in order to show respect for Him. Only the Chasidim and other especially pious individuals who toiled to improve their service of G-d would wear a Kippah at all time of the day.

With time, the custom of wearing a Kippah regularly became more commonplace, until finally it became accepted among Jewish people across the world. Now, it is also a symbol of our national identity, a badge that shows the whole world that the wearer is a proud, observant Jew!

(With the exception of the members of the Christian clergy, who wear a similar head covering. Perhaps it is a remnant of their long-lost, discarded roots among the Jewish people)

At which age do we start wearing a Kippah?

The general practice is to start wearing a Kippah at the age of 3, in order to accustom our children to wearing them when they are older. There are some who put Kippahs on their children even before then, since it is such an important symbol of the Jewish people.

Wearing a Kippah at all time is a custom and not an obligation, therefore there is no need to worry if a child pulls his Kippah off. This is in fact the reason many only start to put Kippahs on their children at age 3, since it can be assumed that young children will have a hard time keeping it on at all times anyways. The one thing that should be absolutely avoided is making wearing the Kippah into a bad experience for the child, and the best thing one can do to help their children with this is to be a good role model for them.

What types of Kippah are there, and what’s different about them?

Nowadays there are several different styles of Kippah depending on one’s religious background, for example:

Black Kippah – Usually worn by Chareidim.

Knitted Kippah – Generally seen on Zionistic Jews (often with many colors).

Large White Knitted Kippah – Often worn by Breslov Chisidim.

Velvet Kippah with gold or silver decorations – Usually seen on Traditional and Orthodox Sephardim.

According to the traditional style, a Kippah should be big enough to cover one’s head and to be seen from all sides. However, in modern times one can find plenty of different types of Kippahs on Jews everywhere, including Kippahs with team logos, the wearer’s name, or other special designs emblazoned on them.

This style of Kippah is generally handed out to guests at events such as weddings or Bar Mitzvahs, since they are light and easy to produce. It is also easy to make them with the name and date of the celebration they are commemorating and make for good keepsakes for those who attended the event.
