Kippa, Star of David Embroidered Velvet 

 

A Kippah (or plural Kippot) is a thin, rounded cloth cap worn by religious Jews on their heads. It is an ancient practice for Jews to cover their heads during prayer. Some Jews only wear a Kippah while praying, making blessings, or studying Jewish religious texts, but the most Orthodox Jews will not walk without a Kippah.

Traditionally, Kippot were worn only by men (women covered their heads more completely with scarves, hats, or wigs), but in modern times it is possible to see women wearing Kippot as well (this is due to gaining equality between the sexes amongst Jewish communities)

The Kippah is the most commonly known and recognized piece of Jewish garb, but it is actually the one with the least religious significance.

Often, the color and fabric of the Kippot can be a sign of loyalty to a specific religious movement.

For example:

Members of most ultra orthodox groups usually wear black velvet or cloth Kippot that covers most of their heads. Reformed Jews usually wear smaller and more colorful Kippot.

The source for wearing a Kippah is found in the Talmud, where it is states "Cover your head in order that the fear of heaven may be upon you."
