A dress that covers my elbows and down past the knees, no cleavage. No watch, no kippah, just a wedding ring.

In the summer, slacks and a dress shirt (no tie or jacket). In the winter, a suit.

I always wear a kippah.

No, you get used to it. I dress like that at work, too, even in the summer. It's not too bad.

In Arab countries (where I work) the synagogues' are underground and thus I can't dress in any special way. In Israel I dress much the same way as in the US (if I'm in Jerusalem I add a coat) except I can actually walk to Shabbat services.

As a side note, when I was in the Marines a special tent was set up for me (I was the only Jew) when we were in Lebanon and it was guarded by two Muslim Marines who are still close friends today.
This is the coolest story ever. Did they choose two Muslims on purpose or was it just a coincidence?

Read the quote: They were my friends then as they are now. FWIW As a Mizrahi I am fluent in Levant Arabic.
