Ritual garb

Do I need to wear a Kippah or a Tallis?


We welcome the use of head coverings and prayer shawls as symbols of Jewish worship.  However, individual choice is respected. Some folks who don’t wear a tallit for the rest of the service try to put on when they are coming up for an aliyah -- someone in your row might be willing to lend theirs. Above all, we want you to feel comfortable, welcome and holy in whatever garb you choose to don for the occasion. And please, do not impose your standards of ritual dress on others, or make assumptions about people's genders based on their choice of garb!
