Yes, that’s David Beckham wearing a yarmulke



As Jews, we learn early on the importance of the grieving process and we respect it. Which is why it’s such an outrage that some unscrupulous opportunist photographed David Beckham mourning at his grandfather’s funeral.  So it is in absolute protest of this kind of exploitation that I post this adorable photo of David Beckham wearing a kippa.

This, of course, isn’t the first Jewy thing Beckham has done. In the past, he has said that he’s “half Jewish” from his mother’s side, but never observed a religious practice. He does, however, seem to care about Jewish education; at least one of his children is enrolled in school at Stephen S. Wise Temple.
