    I'm reconnecting with Judaism and my Jewish culture but I had been struggling to find a kippah I would feel comfortable wearing at this point in my life. I saw this store and instantly fell in love with this gorgeous design! These are beautifully made, high quality kippot made with excellent materials and a strong plastic comb built in that will hold it onto any head of hair (as you can see...) I received my kippah from Barbara in a timely manner and customer service was absolutely amazing; she is a very kind seller! We chatted for a bit on etsy. Be sure to ask about custom designs if you have ideas that aren't shown in the shop!

About

In the beginning....

I started making kippot for friends and colleagues. Folks kept asking: Did I sell them? Would I?

Finally, I made forty kippot and brought them to a Jewish Renewal conference. In two days I had sold nearly everything I’d brought with me. One kippah I made became a birthday gift for a conference attendee; a second went to a woman who was then in a coma (she awoke soon after her friends came home!). Women tried on kippot, taking pictures with their cell phones, advising each other on color and style, and wearing my kippot at angles I never considered. Men tried on kippot they couldn't find anywhere else.

And now, it's your turn. Here's a special perk: When you wear a kippah I've made it will come with blessings. I sew joy and fun into each creation. When you put your kippah on, may all those blessings tumble right on to your keppe. And, as my own Nana Becky used to say whenever she bought me anything new, wear it in good health!

    I am an ordained rabbi serving a small community in Concord, North Carolina. I also teach all things Jewish at the University of North Carolina Charlotte as a faculty member in the Department of Religious Studies. I love to see Jewish women wearing unique and beautiful kippot, whether I made them or someone else did.
