      1. Title: Only Two Kittels
        Author: Chaim Simons ,

        In shuls all over the world, many of the worshippers wear a kittel during the services on Rosh Hashanah and especially on Yom Kippur. However in the Belz Shul in Jerusalem, which is probably the largest shul in Eretz Yisroel and seats many thousands of worshippers, only the Belz Rebbe and the shaliach tzibur wear a kittel. (see: Mishpacha, English edition, 28 September 2005, page 21)

      2. Title: Kittel and Burial
        Author: Chaim Simons ,

        In the Diaspora, men are often burial wearing their kittel, the garment they wore each Yom Kippur. In Israel however, the custom is not to add to detract from the tachrichim. Therefore in answer to a question on this subject, Rav Tukachinski (Gesher Hachaim, part 2, 28:3) writes that if there is time to convert the kittel into the ktones garment of the tachrichim, it is proper to do so.
