Where do you place your hat during Shachris, after putting on your Talis, if there are no available hat hooks and the Shul is full to capacity?December 5, 2017 10:39 am at 10:39 am #1418704
The question cannot be answered as each shul is built differently. We don’t have hat hooks. We have shelves in the hallway for hats and if filled, on the top of the bookcases, and if those are filled, on the table next to where we are sitting.December 5, 2017 10:39 am at 10:39 am #1418726
Depends – if I’m wearing a ball type hat, I might just leave it on the seat next to me or in front of me. If it’s a winter knit hat, I’ll stuff it in my jacket pocket.December 5, 2017 10:53 am at 10:53 am #1418780
I’ve heard some people object that putting the hat on the table is, for some reason, inappropriate.
Where else is it to be put if the hooks, shelves and chairs are full? Besides, on a chair someone might mistakenly sit on it or you might cause someone to not have a seat if the other chairs are taken.December 5, 2017 12:06 pm at 12:06 pm #1418876
You fling it on to any item that has a projection or 90 degree corner that it can hang over. Ordinarily I throw my hat on top of one of the bookshelves. If that space was taken then I hang it off the top corner of the book shelf or off of the AC unit. I used to put it on the table but kids once knocked it down to the floor and then trampled it.December 5, 2017 12:17 pm at 12:17 pm #1418880
I carry a little hook with a suction cup in my tallis bag, so I just need to find a window or other smooth surface on which to stick it.December 5, 2017 12:46 pm at 12:46 pm #1419095
If I recall correctly, R’ Yaakov Kaminetsky TZATZAL stated that the minhag in Sladboka was to wear a hat during davening and not the tallis “ibber der kup”. So you can just wear your hat.December 5, 2017 12:50 pm at 12:50 pm #1419097
I find a bochur not wearing a hat and stick it on his head.December 5, 2017 1:00 pm at 1:00 pm #1419100
Chas v’shalom that a bochor wouldn’t be wearing his own hat.December 5, 2017 1:43 pm at 1:43 pm #1419136
Just wear a kipah sigurah and not worry about where to put the hats…..December 5, 2017 1:57 pm at 1:57 pm #1419144
I leave it in the car and walk into shul wearing just my yarmulkeDecember 5, 2017 2:34 pm at 2:34 pm #1419176
GH: I always thought it was kippah serugah.
CTLAWYER: I thought we were talking about Shabbos.December 5, 2017 3:13 pm at 3:13 pm #1419192
We’re talking about both during the week and on Shabbos. But it seems to be a bigger problem during the week since everyone is spread out with their Talis and Tefilin and sometimes coats.December 5, 2017 4:01 pm at 4:01 pm #1419425
Just wear a kipah sigurah and not worry about where to put the hats…..
I’ve never heard of this “kipah sigurah”. Is it some kind of kipah that finds you a place to put your hat?
Sounds fascinating.December 5, 2017 5:15 pm at 5:15 pm #1419804
Joseph: In my shul it’s the opposite. Not a problem during the week but a slight problem on shabbos.December 5, 2017 6:28 pm at 6:28 pm #1420583
At the hat store?December 5, 2017 11:42 pm at 11:42 pm #1420719
my own kind of jewParticipant
This isn’t something I’ve ever really had to worry about,
As I do not wear a hat for shachris (or, for that matter, ever really).December 6, 2017 7:51 am at 7:51 am #1420828
Shabbos is not a problem
Our shul’s main sanctuary has old fashioned theatre style seats that have a wire ring to hold a hat under the seat. One places the hat in the loop, lowers the seat and sits down.
If there is a simcha or yubtif that requires adding additional seating there is sufficient room in the coat rooms for those hatsDecember 6, 2017 9:22 am at 9:22 am #1420880
Try the mikva or bathroom stalls. Plenty extra hooks there. Or flip the shower Head up a few degrees and and your hat. Or sew a hook to your chest. Endless ideas.December 6, 2017 10:24 am at 10:24 am #1420956
CTL: I thought you davened at the compound during yomim tovim.December 6, 2017 8:27 pm at 8:27 pm #1421570
