Football kippah (or yamulke)

Description: A yarmulke (kippah in Hebrew) is a skull cap worn, especially during prayer and religious study, by Jewish boys and men. This football yamulke combines two important things in a young Jewish boy's life--sports and religion! This fun sports yarmulke would be worn by a young boy who was probably not an Orthodox or Conservative Jew. Those particular sects of Judaism would most likely opt for traditional religious clothing.
