More Yarmulka Stuff
Two op-eds in the Jerusalem Post, here
, dealing with wearing yarmulkas.

Good articles. I disagree with the first, yet I see where he is coming from. If one wears something since birth, they are likely to forget about its significance. Thus it becomes quite problematic...if one isn't reminded of the fear its supposed to arouse nor the respect its represents due the length of time wearing it, then what's the point of wearing it since it can only misrepresent Judaism.
I do feel though that Judaism is a part of a person that (if chosen) should be proudly displayed. Joe or Mary America has many Jews to spot, and can easily take from the bad or good. I also think Abramoff did such a chillul Hashem, fogetaboutit.
Great articles. Thanks!
