Because of the palm leaf’s shape like that of a hand’s “palm,” the Hebrew word kippah comes from the Hebrew word kaph (Strongs #3709) meaning “palm.” The word kippah is also the modern Hebrew word for the head covering worn by Jews, often called a yarmulke (the Yiddish word for a kippah), because of its bent shape like a palm.
