On the 3rd birthday of a Orthodox Jewish boy he has his first ever hair cut leaving his peyos (sideburns) to grow. His Grandfather then places a kippah on his head for the first ever time. A kippah is said to be ‘A blessing on the head’ and is perhaps the most instantly identifiable mark of a Jew. With both his Grandfathers either side he now begins to learn the Alpha bet so he can read the Torah.
