The Case of Skullcaps, Plural and Singular

August 22, 2000

I enjoyed the article ("Jewish Cultural Leaders Quibble About Epochal Moment," Aug. 11). I just wanted to point out one very minor error.

The story makes mention that, "They want to know why he doesn't wear a Kipot [skullcap] in public." Actually, the word Kipot is plural for Kipah. Therefore, Kipah means skullcap and Kipot means skullcaps.
