The Schmooze

Summer Stylin' in the YamulKap

Despite their common purpose – as a sign of respect toward God – yarmulkes come in a variety of shapes, sizes and designs, from the black velvet style worn by Haredim, to the mid-size satin skullcaps distributed at Reform bar mitzvahs. But with summer fast approaching, keep your eye out for the stylish YamulKap, dubbed a “perfect combination of yamulka and visor cap.”

Jewishly chic, the YamulKap is a simple blue cotton yarmulke fastened to a blue visor by three straps. YamulKap creator Seth Mosler came up with the idea over summer 2008 after noticing sun-drenched Jewish men relaxing in New York’s Central Park without protection.
