Why I Currently Don’t Wear a Kippah Outside of Prayer

  1. I should be able to engage with my culture and my faith and not have people in or outside of it judge me or harm me for it.
  2. I would like to belong and stay engaged in Judaism.
  3. It’s something that ties into for me (again some non-men wear them and that’s cool too) but for me was something I was socialized to know as a traditionally male/masculine part of being Jewish and I want to accept all the things that come with being a Jewish man.
  4. Jews are diverse. We are not a monolith. and we should all honor that.
