JTA — A New Jersey store reportedly is sending free yarmulkes to Edon Pinchot, the kipah-wearing former contestant on “America’s Got Talent.”
Cool Kippahs in Teaneck, NJ, is sending Edon several free yarmulkes in honor of the fact that the teenager wore them during all of his performances on the NBC reality show, the TMZ website reported. Edon, a singer and pianist, was eliminated last month in the semifinals.
Edon, a student at the Ida Crown Jewish Academy in Chicago, is Sabbath observant and keeps kosher. His kipah made him a focal point for viewers.
