3. Skull caps – KippahMost Jews will cover their heads when praying, attending the synagogue or at a religious event or festival.The most common reason (for covering the head) is a sign of respect and fear of God. It is also felt that this separates God and human, by wearing a hat you are recognising that God is above all mankind.
