New Kippa

New Kippa January 29, 2015

Sharona Schwartz:

With a major increase in anti-Semitic incidents reported all over Europe, prompting some Jews to try to hide their faith in public, a new accessory was developed to allow Jewish men to wear their yarmulkes but look like they’re not.

It’s a yarmulke made of human hair, called the “Magic Kippa,” referring to the Jewish skullcap’s name in Hebrew.

Israeli hairdresser Shalom Koresh said he designed the head covering, which marries the yarmulke with the toupee, after hearing how Jews in Europe were taking off their yarmulkes in public for fear of being attacked.

A sad reality.
