German Council Warns Against Wearing Jewish Headwear due to Anti-Semitism

Sputnik News – April 24 , 2018

Donning heads with kippahs, traditional brimless caps worn by religious Jews, is said to be especially dangerous in big cities due to possible attacks.

The president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, Josef Schuster, advised individuals to avoid “openly appearing in kippahs in Germany’s major cities.”

In an interview with RBB radio on Tuesday, Schuster stressed that if society isn’t be able to resist anti-Semitism, “this will ultimately pose a danger to democracy.”

His remark came just a week after a Syrian refugee attacked a young Israeli wearing a kippah in Berlin.
