FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(PressReleaser) May 10, 2013 — There are many things that we see daily regarding people of different cultures and most of the times, we do not know why they act in a certain why or why they wear certain clothes and so on. The only way we would be able to understand people of other cultures would be to learn a bit about their history and to welcome them along with their traditions. There are a few things that you can learn about the Jewish people and their history such as the meaning of Kippahs and Ketubahs and why are they so important. We need to understand that every single culture has a way of being due to their past. Each culture comes with specific traditions that need to be respected by everyone.

What is the reason Kippahs are worn by Jewish people? If you are interested in this culture, then you should know that in the Talmud you will find information about the reasons these hats are worn. The most important reason is the fact that people who wear it acknowledge the presence of a Higher Authority. When it comes to other reasons people wear these hats, we can mention the fact that if you see someone with this type of hat, then you should expect them to behave in a certain manner. For example, they wear modest clothes and speak respectfully without any offensive words.

In the past, only for the high priests it was mandatory to keep their heads covered. However, as time passed by, it has become a custom for all proud Jewish people to wear them in times of prayer. As people of other cultures remove their hats while praying, the Jewish people are forbidden to do so because it is said that choosing to adopt the customs of other religions shows that you do not have enough respect for your own. When talking about Ketubahs, you should know that it is one of the most respected and popular forms of art in the Jewish culture. Artists work hard to create the designs of these documents.

Signing such a document at one's wedding is a tradition that has been passed along for hundreds of years. The traditional manuscripts of Ketubot have been taken into consideration for a very long time, close to four hundred years. When talking about this document, some people see it as a prenuptial agreement because in the text found there you can read the obligations of the groom regarding his bride. It is important to talk to a rabbi before actually choosing the design and text of this important document. Knowing more about the history of the Jewish culture helps you understand what is important to them and why.
