20 Mar

Dr. Jonathan Chalett is a pediatrician who has an unusual habit of collecting autographed yarmulkes. Yarmulkes are Jewish head coverings also known as kippahs.

Dr. Challet has been collecting the autographs of celebrities since 1999, asking them to sign the inside of a yarmulke. His collection of celebrity autographs is wide ranging, from politicians to sports figures, artists and performers. Each signed yarmulke is accompanied by memorabilia of the celebrity and background information.

Come and see his amazing collection, on display in Odegaard Library, through the end of April!
