Look, everyone practices Judaism their own way. Someone finds a way to be Jewish that just feels right? More power to ’em. That being said, if you’re going to practice the sort of Judaism that involves wearing a giant crochet vagina on your head, well, you should be prepared to get some weird looks at traffic lights and in supermarket aisles, at the very least.
These unique and meticulously handmade kippahs (kippot / ki-pot) are the perfect gift for the ladies in your life. Ideal for Bat Mitzvahs, Lesbian Weddings, Lady Rabbis, Feminists of the chosen variety, Midwives, Doulas and Renewalists. Also great for any-gendered and any-affiliated folks who appreciate a cheeky traditional-non-traditional way to acknowledge and REMEMBER WHERE YOU CAME FROM :) It’s kind of like a high-five and a wink at your creator.
These kippot (למה? כי פות) are inspired by the fact that typically kippahs sit on the crown of the head, in the exact spot that (typically) the baby’s head first enters the world in birth. They are not intended to be irreverent but rather to embrace the wholeness and transcendent power of life.
According to wikipedia’s entry on kippot:
The Talmud states, “Cover your head in order that the fear of heaven may be upon you.” Rabbi Hunah ben Joshua never walked 4 cubits (6.6 feet, or 2 meters) with his head uncovered. He explained: “Because the Divine Presence is always over my head.”
And if the Divine Presence doesn’t have a sense of humour, I’ll be damned.
Examples shown are from the birth set (of increasing dilation) but non-birth oriented kippahs are in the works as well. Kippahs can be custom-ordered and modified with regard to colour palette, anatomy, grooming particularities, size, and if you think of other variations, feel free to discuss with me. xo
