Yarmulke – Introduction

Our first topic will be the requirement for a Jewish man to cover his head. This is usually fulfilled by wearing a yarmulke, also known as a kippah. We will first explore the halachic sources, including whether or not it is actually required (or perhaps only encouraged), and in what circumstances one is allowed to have his head uncovered. Next, we will discuss to what extent the wearing of a yarmulke is a protected religious practice under American law.
