"Jews have feelings too!"
Back in the 16th and 17th century the Jews had some type of long robes from their neck area to the bottom of their feet. Jews also had long beards because traditionally the Jewish men grew full beards and long sideburns called peyote. Jews wore a kippah which is a thin rounded skullcap.
