Kippa to Kippa – הכיפה לאורך הדורות
This project is about my family tree and history. It is very important to me that I learn about my family, where my ancestors were born, the food they ate and the traditions they followed.
I chose to use the Kippa as part of my project, because the Kippa is something that we ALL have used in ALL of my family, from one generation to the next. The Kippa reminds us that G-d is above us and watches our every act. Every Jewish man or boy uses a Kippa at some point.

The type of the Kippa changes through time, and this is represented in my display. Inside each of the Kippot I chose, I have added important symbols, flags and pictures that describe the different generations in my family. Some Kipot are actually from special moments and celebration in my family, for example, my Kippa is from my Brit-Mila.
Whenever I use any of these Kipot, it helps me remember my family history and my Jewish life.
