PUTTING THE WORD AHEAD

The Jewish Chronicle - - News -

Kip­pot are a po­lit­i­cal fash­ion state­ment in Amer­ica this sea­son, with hun­dreds of Amer­i­can Jews putting their al­le­giance on their heads. One Re­form woman, 76-year-old Estelle Ju­lian, em­broi­dered her kip­pah with the words “John McCain is Zayer Shain” — or “John McCain is Great”— and proudly wore it at the Rosh Hashanah ser­vices in her shul in New Jer­sey. Oth­ers have tried the slo­gan “McCip­pah” or “Obam­ica ’08” on their kip­pot. Ap­par­ently Obama yarmulkes are top-sell­ers.
