In today's society, i don't think there is any excuse for not wearing a kippah in the workplace. There are so many options nowadays and most people are very accepting. If there is one company that's not, then go to another one. Do the right thing, and wear your kippah and tziztis!

I'm a born Jew who had the misfortune of being raised in protestant land. I had not said too much about being Jewish untill after I left the work a day world. Now I have the beard and wear my kippah at all times, and keep some on hand for guests.

Bringing back memories
I would watch the Larry Sanders show every week back in 1996 when it was airing. It was true satire in the most biting and hysterical fashion. Very few shows would make me laught like it.
Little did I know, that I also was to become one of those annoying rebellious Jews and started to wear my kippah on the street only a couple of years later! But at the workplace, I wasn't brave enough.

It's very funny, but in a melancholy way for me:
This is sadly where I find myself every time I try to share my jewishness.

I loved it!
Could it ever really happen that a comedian was to wear his yarmulka on TV? Why not? It doesn't impede his (or her) ability to be humorous. It is an outward express of one's belief in G-d. I see stars "dripping" with gold and/or diamond encrusted crucifixes performing on stage. They are either comedians or singers...often rock stars. I don't see the entire world reeling in hatred or disgust. Punk hair is okay, facial & body piercings are okay, but for some reason we frown on any outward expression of "the G-d of Avraham". What are we afraid of?.........

Jews should never hide their Jewishness
We are to be a light unto the nations. Why should we hide? All other religions in the world profess themselves loudly. Why shouldn't we?

In an ideal world
Taking a position in a company that exhibits any hatred towards any group is inadvisable. If an insane person, excuse me, person full of hatred, (I see little difference) were to be hired into a company where I worked, I would hide my differences, religious and otherwise, until I had befriended this person. My objective would be to demonstrate to this person that there is something likable in all of us. Once I felt this person was comfortable with who I am, I would reveal more of myself. If I lose this person's friendship due to our differences, what did I loose? Nothing.

Timely Question/ I need answers, too
This has been a question on my mind, too for a very long time. Would it be wise to reveal your faith if your life depended on it? I see good arguements on both sides of the issue...

seems the price of being different and/ or standing out still has a price. Dont make waves or be yourself ? Both cost. The price is to be weighed and the balance is to be sought.

I work at a public high school and cover my head with a hat. I am proud of this as others know who I am and what my beliefs are. It makes me a stronger person and when a student asks me, ( which I only had one time) why I can wear a hat and not them, I say it's part of who I am as an adult. If we want to get respect from others, we should respect ourselves first.

We should show that we are proud of we are & not be ashamed of it!
If the arabs can do it, we, the chosen nation should deffinitly do it!
Years ago, my father was asked by an associate before a big meeting to take off his yarmulka. He refused & said, if this is why we dont get this job, i dont want the job.
He was rewarded for this, by seeing divine providence, when upon being awarded the job, the owner said to him "i am happy to be giving this to one of our own".
While its true, that not always do you see it so clearly, however, in the big picture, you cant go wrong doing "the right thing"!

if the arabs dont hide their religion, how much more so, us jews, who are the chosen nation, should not hide it & show that we are proud of who we are & not ashamed of it one bit!. Years ago, my father was asked by an associate not to wear his yarmulka to a big meeting. He refused to take it off & he saw divine providence by ending up being awarded the job & the owner of the building telling him "i'm happy to give it to one of my own"!

Don't wear religion on your sleeve but you can still be proud
People should be judged by their deeds and their religious choices should guide their actions regarding right and wrong. It gives people a conscious. Being jewish and working in an almost totally in a non jewish field (police officer in a major city), I did not advertise my religion. It however, was well known. There were those who made it clear they did not like me and there were those who went out of their way to wish me well on jewish holidays. I did not go out of my way to make known my beliefs, but in the fall of 1993 when I was promoted and the following months received high awards for two different life and death situations, there was an officer who also is a minister gave the prayer and invocation prior to the ceremony(s). In October I was upset when they made reference to Jesus. In November, again I was very upset when they made reference to Jesus being there for me and that was why I survived this life threatening situation. Knowing that I was due to receive another award in December, I made an official complaint via my Rabbi who was the only jewish chaplain for our dept. The religious reference did not occur in December's Award Ceremony.
Actions speak louder than words, it is not necessary to advertise nor hide your religion.
