A KIPPAH literally translates from the ancient hebrew word of dome. This dome signifies the presence of the Creator who has created and conducts the daily lives of all those "Under the dome”. A kippah (Hebrew) is frequently referred to as a yarmulka (Aramaic), skullcap (English), and koppel (Yiddish). This Jewish male head covering is required to be worn by all types of Jews, of all levels of observance. It has become a reminder to the person wearing it that God’s presence is over him, and therefore he must conduct himself accordingly. Wearing a kippah is a sign of respect for anyone (even non-Jews) in a synagogue.
The size and material of a kippah can vary greatly by its wearer. Different backgrounds, upbringings, and differences within Jewish culture itself will have many variations of kippahs. Communities of Jews around the world will decorate their head coverings differently with unique expressions of religious fervor and creativity. Shapes, sizes, and materials will all be in sync with the different backgrounds and affiliations of the wearer.
