Your Kippah can be Kool!  Yarmulkes, also known as kippot and skull caps, can be as much a part of your Jewish wedding or bat/bar mitzvah celebration as the decor, music, and other traditions. Your kippah design can reflect your personal style, match your color palette or theme, and can be a great way for the younger set to embrace the tradition if you get them involved in selecting kippot. There are even eco-friendly options and endless possibilities for personalization.
