German Jews advised against wearing traditional caps in public

A German religious leader has urged the nation’s Jews not to wear kippahs, the faith’s traditional skullcap, in public areas — especially in large cities.

According to Central Council of Jews in Germany President Josef Schuster, an upcoming Berlin march in support of wearing the kippah is an ill-advised effort to fight antisemitism.

His comments also came on the heels of an apparently hate-fueled attack on two men wearing the caps.

Schuster acknowledged that “showing your colors would in principle be the right way” to stand up to attacks on the faith.

“Nevertheless, I would advise individual people against openly wearing a kippah in big German cities.”
