An Insight

I am not Jewish, but it is thanks to videos like this and people taking time to talk about their religion, motivations and experiences that can help us all understand more than we did before, and gain an insight that we won't normlly experience. So, thank you.

I want to wear one but here in Holland, especially in Rotterdam, they will beat you up for wearing one.

Grandfather told us.......

My Grandfather told my brother and I many years ago that we wear the kippah so we will be recognized by others and never forget that we are Jews. I have never forgotten who I am. A wonderful read....thank you so much.

The opening question was not answered. I wear a kippah to pray and enter synagogue etc.but am constantly aware of God,s presence and gift in all I see and do.Even as a boy, when I raced away and was going to score in a representative game all that was in my mind was thanks to the Almighty that a Jew was being seen to do this. I have never mentioned this before but I resent the holier than thou attitude of those who wear a kippah

Men go bald women don't

I think that habits leared earily in age are hard to break maybe the reason for this one is because men go bald and women don't.
