    Every boy or man going to the Western Wall(called hakotel hama'aravi) is required to wear a kippah. The hakotel hama'aravi is a sacred place where you need to pay respect. Women can't wear short trousers and/or uncovered arms either.
    It all has to do with the fact Jewish people are required by the Tenach(Gods word) to be pure and holy and don't want to be insubordinate to the Tenach.
    Keeping yourself covered to be "exposed" in your marriage, meaning you can have sexual intercourse within the marriage for reproductive reasons is okay. Looking at pornographic or explicit images are forbidden and many Jewish groups and people don't allow intimate physical contact. Ejaulation outside of the body makes a man unclean, which makes it required to take place under guidance of a Jewish supervisor in a mikwe(a ritual bath men are supposed to use twice a year).
    Women are required to have it every time they have had their period as well as giving birth and utilities need to be soaked in the mikwe as well.
    Every year before Pesach(easter) the house should be cleaned entirely and all dust and yeast products should be exposed to prevent illness.
    In the time the Tenach was given down by God to the writers they lived without fridges and freezers. Keep in mind this is also a reason to be very hygienic about how to deal with yourelf and others as well as your food and your house.

    Cindy, can you tell the source for all this info? some of it is correct, but some of it is wrong and /or partially truth.

    Well really you don't have to be Jewish to wear one, but it helps.
    If you were really feeling bold you could make one and then decorate it into just about anything you wanted! Like fire some huge ears on there, you're an instant rabbit. Slap some antennae on there and bam you're a caterpillar! Cover it in tinfoil, a colander, and the obligatory LED and presto: You're a SETI station.

    The possibilities are endless!
