German Jewish Leader Advises Against Wearing Yamulkas In Cities


Germany’s main Jewish leader says he would advise people visiting big cities against wearing Yarmulkas, following a street assault last week on two young men wearing them.

The attack in Berlin, in which a 19-year-old Syrian asylum-seeker is a suspect, added to growing concern in Germany about anti-Semitism.

Josef Schuster, the head of Germany’s Central Council of Jews, told broadcaster Radioeins Tuesday that wearing a skullcap is right in principle, but that he was advising individuals “against showing themselves openly with a kippa in a big-city setting in Germany, and wear a baseball cap or something else to cover their head instead.”

Schuster suggested three years ago that Jews shouldn’t wear skullcaps in areas with large Muslim populations. But he stressed there’s increasing anti-Semitic sentiment among non-migrants.



  1. I always found it amusing seeing a Chasidish looking guy with big Zavtig Payos behind his ears wearing a baseball cap. I used to say to myself, now that is one Jewish looking Goy!

  2. Usually when we listen to “German Jewish Leader Advises ” we end-up in gas chambers.. Who appointed this airhead to be a Jewish “leader”?
