Kippah for Children
What is a kippah?
A kippah, a round skullcap worn by a Jew, is a statement of commitment, expressing awareness that G-d is above. Indeed, the popular word for kippah in Yiddish is "yarmulke" which is explained as a derivative from the Aramaic words "yira malka" awe of the king. In Talmudic times, wearing a kippah was not binding but over the ages, it has become universally accepted in all communities.
At what age do boys begin to wear a kippah?
Usually, boys start wearing a kipah after their first hair cut at the age of three when they also begin to wear tzitzit although some families put a kipah on an infant from after the brit, keeping it securely tied with two strings on either side. It often takes time for a child to become accustomed to their kippah. Be reassured. Eventually, it will become so much part of them that they will feel uncomfortable without it.
