A kippah, also known as a yarmulke, is a
covering for the head, that was traditionally worn by Jewish
men. In modern times both men and women wear one. Some people
wear them all the time as a reminder that the Creator is
above them. In the Sefardic and Kabbalistic communities,
the custom is to cover the head during prayer, meditation,
sacred study, and during meals.
According to Kabbalistic teaching, when
we pray, meditate, study or eat we are connecting to the
Upper Worlds, to the Creator's Light. We receive the cosmic
energies and the Light through the crown of our head (crown
chakra), which can overwhelm us. Let us use the example of
a coffee filter. When you brew coffee you use a filter to
keep the coffee grounds from entering into the serving container.
You certainly could drink coffee with lots of grounds in
the cup, but it might make you sick. The kippah acts as a
filter for the Creator's intense Light and the cosmic energies
that enter the "temple of the soul."
A diva can be a person or a thing that is
utterly fabulous. And DIVA is actually David spelled backwards
and drop the D. David crochets each kippah and the
other items with love & Light. Every thing
