An Israeli barber has developed a yarmulke to wear when you are not wearing a yarmulke…it is made from hair!

The times we live in have created problems for many Jews throughout the world who fear they are at risk walking the streets wearing a yarmulke.

Rehovot barber Shalom Koresh came up with the idea of producing yarmulkes made from human hair which blend in with their owners’ own hair.

The invisible kippa sells for around A$115 although Koresh has come up with a cheaper version made from artificial hair for A$70.

Travellers to Europe have been advised to wear the invisible kippa in countries where anti-Jewish sentiment is running high.

The Magic Kippa as it is known has found a favourable market in France where following the Charlie Hebdo and Kosher supermarket killings, many orthodox Jews are apprehensive about wearing a kippa in the streets.

Koresh told J-Wire: “We are planing on offering it for sale worldwide.  A website will be up and running in a few days and worldwide orders can be made from there.”

    This is one of the most frightening things I can imagine, that Jewish men must now disguise themselves, in order to avoid becoming a target of Islamic terrorists. I am a Noahide.
