I belive it has some thing to do with a Direct link to the heaven

By the 1500's the yamakas became a universal sign among all Jewish males of their special relationship to God. Thanks.

It's ancient practice for Jews to cover their heads.

Jewish men where yarmulkes which comes from a Tartar word meaning skullcap. It's ancient practice for Jews to cover their heads.


Hannah Lappin

A yarmulke (or kippa) shows respect for g
G-D and people of higher social status. Wearing a kippa is not a religious commandment, it is a way Jews have learned to show respect for G-D.

yarmulkas?

Jewish mean wear Yarmulkas just like people wear wedding rings.It's a sign that you are involved with someone-in this case,G-d.
