The Jewish laws enjoin us to wear modest clothing. In addition, males, and married women, cover the head. See also Numbers (Bamidbar), end of ch.15, regarding the tzitzith-fringed garment.

Tallit - prayer shawl

Tzitzit - essentially a smaller tallit but looks like a small poncho and is worn under the shirt by men

Kippah - skull cap
