Knitted Kippah - Na Nach Nachman - White
50% Cotton, 50% Synthetic
Hand-made knitted kippah
Size: 8.7" / 22 cm
This large knitted kippah with a white tassel on top is elastic and will fit snugly over the top of the head for most people. The fun design has become very popular in Israel in recent years, particularly among Breslover Chassidim and hilltop youth.
The words around the edge of the kippah are the mantra/poem Na Nach Nachma Nachman Me'Uman recited by many Breslover Chassidim as a sort of segulah or charm.
Rabbi Nachman of Breslov (Bratslav) was a major early Chassidic master. Since his death and burial in the Ukranian city of Uman in 1810, his burial site has become a major site for Jewish pilgrimmage, especially during Rosh Hashanah, when thousands of Jews from all over the world flock to Uman.
