German Jews Told Not To Wear Kippahs In Public
CNN reports German Jews have been warned by a leading government official not to wear traditional kippahs in all public settings following a rise in anti-Semitic attacks across the country.
Felix Klein, the German government's anti-Semitism commissioner said: "My opinion has unfortunately changed compared with what it used to be."I cannot advise Jews to wear the kippah everywhere all the time in Germany." Klein suggested that a rise in "social disinhibition and coarseness" was to blame for the worsening situation.
