A custom is a specific practice that emerged that reflects a particular observance of a Jewish tradition. For example, the custom of wearing a yarmulke (skull cap) is widespread throughout all Jews, but there is no specific law that commands Jews to wear it. Customs often become law and tradition for a group over a period of time, but they are only considered long-established practices rather than traditional ones.
