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!

Kippah

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?.........
