Skullcap worn by Jews during prayer.
Many Jews use the kippah at all times, both as a statement of being Jewish and as a statement of God's presence everywhere, at all times.
The Kippah is shaped like a bowl and covers only a smaller part of the head. It is attached to the head by using clips. There are no specific rules on the shape, nor fabric, colours or patterns.
Non-Jews visiting a synagogue are obliged to wear a kippah.
