comment Why did Israeli sportsmen keep their hats on during their national anthem?
@SethJ It is cultural convention, probably with Christian origins. There are some occasions (e.g. anthems, minute of silence, in the church, or in the buildings generaly) where are you supposed to take off the hat. The tournament was in the Europe (Czech), so I guess that answer to question 1 is "yes". Question 2 is more complicated to me. But I see that the customs about wearing a hats are completely different, so "their time, their rules" make sense to me.

I am sorry, if it's being read that way, I didn't want to be offensive in any way. I am not a native English speaker, so it's probably misunderstanding. I did some research about head covering generally and I think I see the point, so I will vote for deletion as this question is probably off-topic on this site. Thanks for response.
