What is a Kippah?

Kippah (literally: dome) is the Hebrew word for skullcap, also referred to in Yiddish as a yarmulke, or less frequently as a koppel.

Jewish men are required to cover their heads as a sign of respect and reverence for G‑d. 

A kippah is a small head covering, worn at all times, by men in the traditional Jewish community. (Except when bathing)
