An Israeli doctor found himself lost for words when a reporter on French television asked why he arrived with a yarmulka, Ynet reports.

Dr. Cyrille Cohen, head of immunology at Bar Ilan University – who was a member of the board advising the Health Ministry on the COVID -19 pandemic – explained that he always wears his kippah as part of his Jewish identity, and means no offense by it.

A member of the panel, French Jewish journalist Elisabeth Levy pushed Cohen further, claiming that the French consider religion to be a personal affair, to which he replied that he could hardly keep his identity personal with a name like Cohen.
The incident caused dismay among some Israelis after the exchange became viral online.
Sivan Rahav-Meir, an observant Jew herself and a reporter for Israel’sChannel 12, shared the clip of the television show on her own Twitter feed:


  1. The French military uniform consists of brown pants. A French Army General asked a British Army General why British Army Officers wear Red Uniforms. The Brit responded that they want to keep soldier morale high. When a British Officer is wounded the soldiers won’t notice blood on his red uniform. Now you know why French soldiers wear brown pants.
