A New Invisible ‘Magic Kippa’ Helps Jewish Men who Fear Attacks

Shalom Koresh- Magic Kippa

An Israeli man named Shalom Koresh has invented a new invisible kippa (skull cap) made from artificial hair called “Magic Kippa.” It is intended for use by Orthodox Jews in countries like France where recent terrorist attacks against the Jewish communities there have left many afraid to go out in public wearing a kippa.

The inventor told AP “This skullcap is washable, you can brush it, you can dye it. It was created so people could feel comfortable going to places where they are afraid to go, or places where they can’t wear it, and feel secure.”

Maor Hania, who modeled one, said, “You don’t feel a thing. It feels like it is part of your hair. There isn’t such a difference between this and a regular kippa. It feels the same.”

Authorities and France and Belgium sent droves of security forces to protect Jewish sites in those countries after terrorists murdered four people at a kosher supermarket in Paris earlier this month. But while places, such as synagogues, where many Jews gather can be protected, individual Jews do not feel safe when walking the streets alone or in small groups.

In a French video on YouTube Koresh said, “Because we cannot put on a kippa in these days, we have created a kippa made from natural hair which can be washed.” In French it is called “La Kippa Magique.”
