Sounds yiddish to me.
I wondering if it is a rendering of kapele or if that is a false cognate.
More over I want to know why some Jews use kippah
it seems as a statement rather than yarmulke
. It makes no sense to me if kippah
is indeed a Yiddish rendering.
Everyone I grew up around said yarmulke
without the weird American pronunciation. J Michael just reminded me of this thing that niggles me at times and I lack the resources and time right now to find out.
IOW, curious and lazy.
