This article shows the ways in which a member of the Frum Jewish community feels he is being judged on a day to day basis. The author uses the idea that one’s Kippah can express his religious beliefs and practices to explain the surprising correlation between his Kippah style and his every day life in the community. From his perspective, the wearer’s actual individual’s beliefs and practices are irrelevant when it comes to the community making judgements on him.
In today’s world it seems that a religious artifact of Kippah has taken on a new and superficial role of identity expresser. This contrasts the Kippah’s ideal role, that is to remind the wearer that G-d is above him.
The audience of this website is other Jews who understand enough observant Jewish thought and practice to take meaning out of this blog. It is sort of like a day in the life of a Frum jew, with the question of what it means to be Jewish answered by detailing storys that would happen to Frum Jews. This website does a really good job of showing the reader life happenings from a Frum Jew’s perspective, and it may prove useful to examine
this perspective later on in my research.
