I enjoyed Alan Zeitlin’s article on the Jewish ball boys at the U.S. Open (“Frum On The Court,” Sept. 7). We should be grateful in pointing out that while our brethren in Germany and many other parts of the world have to worry about putting on a yarmulke at work or in public at all, as was referenced in another article in this issue, we here in the United States have to worry more about it falling off.

Kol HaKavod to these young men who honor their religious heritage and display it with pride.
