These Baseball Hats Scream ‘I’m Cute’ and ‘I’m Jewish’

Hey Alma has got your head covered.

Jews are known for our hats. There’s the kippah (or yarmulke), which can be knit, made of felt or satin, be in the Bukharian, Yemenite or Breslov style. There are also larger hats favored by the Haredi community like shtreimels, fedoras or kashket. The Jews of North Africa favor a fez (or tarboush). And don’t forget about head coverings worn by married Orthodox Jewish women!

But what’s a Jew to do if you want to wear a cute, Jewy baseball cap? Don’t worry, we here at Hey Alma have got your head covered.

Below are some of the cutest and most summer-y Jewish hats Etsy has to offer.
