In orthodox synagogues, only married men wear the prayer shawl; the contrary applies to the non-orthodox synagogues. All men can wear the prayer shawl.

A prayer shawl is worn during morning prayers by Jewish boys and men. It is worn during the day, with Yom Kippur being the only exception. The prayer shawl is rarely worn at night, although there isn’t an explicit restriction. Some even sleep in their shawls.

A Tallit is a Jewish prayer shawl (a garment worn by the Jewish faith). Moreover, it is also a symbol of Jewish solidarity within a Gentile world and may be understood through a Jewish/Gentile dichotomy. The tallit (tall-EET) or tallis (TALL-us) is a large rectangular shawl made of wool, cotton, or synthetic fibers. As per the Bible’s instructions, the rectangular talit has fringes attached to each of its four corners.

One must recite the following prayer before putting on the Jewish prayer shawl:

“Baruch atah Adonai

Eloheinu melech ha olam

Asher kidishanu b’mitzvotav

Vitzivanu l’hitatef b’tzitzit.”

Blessed are you, Lord our God.

Ruler of the Universe

Who has sanctified us with your mitzvot

And commanded us to wrap ourselves in tzitzit.

A Tallit is a Jewish prayer shawl (a garment worn by those of Jewish faith). Moreover, it is also a symbol of Jewish solidarity within a Gentile world and may be understood through a Jewish/Gentile dichotomy. The tallit (tall-EET) or tallis (TALL-us) is a large rectangular shawl made of wool, cotton, or synthetic fibers. As per the Bible’s instructions, the rectangular talit has fringes attached to each of its four corners.

The prayer shawl is a piece of clothing used by religious individuals during difficult times. In Judaic religion, it is referred to as the tallit and has been around for centuries! It’s made from wool, cotton, or synthetic material with tassels called tzitzit on four corners that are meant to remind Jews they have God’s presence in their lives at all times.

The tallit is a Jewish prayer shawl that serves as a talisman, symbolizing the connection between God and his people. In Hebrew, the word ‘tallit’ means “to connect” or “to bind.” It has been worn by Jews for centuries as an affirmation of their faith in God. The use of tallits gradually spread to other faiths, such as Christianity. Christians have used them to signify their belief in Jesus Christ and his love for humankind. I am excited to announce that we now carry Christian Tallit at our Judaica store! Visit us today if you are interested in purchasing one!

We have an amazing Jewish prayer shawl for sale- a tallit. It’s 9 feet long and includes the tzitzit (knotted fringes) at each of the four corners. It is perfect for any occasion, whether you’re praying in a synagogue or even just as an accessory to your favorite outfit!

The origin of the tallit can be found in two clauses in Numbers 15:37-41 where God ordained the wearing of a ‘tassel,’ ציצית or tzitzit, on each of the ‘four corners of a standard ‘garment.’ Practically speaking, medieval fashion trends frustrated the fulfillment of this commandment by not allowing tzitzit to be worn easily on everyday apparel. Consequently, the tallit was designed specifically to fulfill the obligation of wearing the tzitziyot. In this light, the tallit acts as a social bridge allowing Jews to function in the modern world (Cf. Deuteronomy 22:12).

In each of the four corners of the shawl are strings tied in a particular pattern, called tzitzit.
For those Jews who wish to stay as close to the performance of God’s commandments as possible, you might say that Judaism is a “fringe” religion, with four tassels (tzitzit) hanging from the fringes of our clothes.

Traditionally, men wear a tallit during morning services; in non-Orthodox synagogues, many women also wear a tallit. In some Orthodox congregations, only married men wear a tallit.  One may see people gathering the tzitzit in their left hand and kissing them when the Torah’s paragraph referring to them is recited.

On each corner, four threads are threaded through a hole and looped over so that eight strings are hanging down. A series of double knots and coils then join the first few inches of each corner’s tassel into a single cord. The remainder of the eight threads is then free to hang down.

A Spiritual Experience

YOUR PRAYERS TAKE ON A NEW MEANING WHEN YOU WEAR THE TALLIS

What can greater respect there be for the commandments of God than to hold them in your hands as you pray? This is the purpose of the 4 fringes at the corners of the Tallit.

Now you can enjoy this amazing feeling of being part of a spiritual experience when you hold them in your hands.

ADD DEPTH TO YOUR PRAYERS

For many, the prayer shawl represents a tent. The shawl is drawn up over the head of the one who is praying as a reminder of God’s protection. Draw your family under the shawl to represent your home and cover your household with your prayers. This is truly a gift from the heart and can be given to boys and girls coming of age, to father and mother, to parents and grandparents on any occasion.

WE BRING YOU AN AUTHENTIC TALLIT

For whoever wears the garment, from whatever faith, it must be seamless. This is to remind God’s people that they are to remain pure and obey Him. The seamless nature of the garment also illustrates that there is only one God and only one savior.

SHIPPED TO YOU FROM THE HOLY LAND

Enjoy your Tallit the way it has been used for centuries:

Hold your Tallit in both hands with the blessing on the collar facing you.
Say the blessing on the collar before putting on the prayer shawl.
Kiss the last word of the blessing.
Wrap the Tallit around your shoulders and enter your personal place of prayer.

Types Of The Tallit Prayer Shawl
There are two types of Jewish prayer shawls:

“Speak to the Israelites and tell them to make for themselves fringes on the corners of their garments in the ages; let them tie a cord of blue to the fringe at each corner. That shall be your fringe; look at it and remember all of the LORD’s commandments and uphold them so that you do not indulge your heart and eyes in your lustful desire. As a result, you will be reminded to obey all My commandments and to be holy to your God.”

1. The Tallit Katan

The Tallit Katan is a fringed garment worn by Jewish men under or over their clothes. It is a poncho-style fabric with a hole for the head and unique twined and knotted fringes such as tzitzit added to its four corners.

Although wearing the tallit katan isn’t considered compulsory according to biblical law, according to Rabbinic law, the practice is strongly recommended for men, serving as a binding custom.

2. The Tallit Gadol

The “Tallit Gadol” prayer shawl is worn over one’s clothes and lies on the shoulders. All male members wear it in the synagogue during morning services and in many cultures by the leader of afternoon and evening prayers.

more than just a piece of clothing

The Jewish prayer shawl is more than just a piece of clothing. The tallit reminds Jews to follow the commandments in their holy book, Torah and symbolizes an intimate relationship with God.
The large triangular shape of the Tallit typically points downward from the left shoulder towards the right knee so that if one were wearing it, they could have each side draped over either arm (left or right side). This garment usually has stripes on its top edge, which are called “Tzitzits” – these serve two purposes: 1) They remind the wearer/wearer what he might be doing wrong; 2) These designate who would be eligible for participation in Temple service should there ever again exist such an institution.

Significance Of The Tallit Prayer Shawl

1. As A Reminder

The Jewish consider the tallit prayer shawl as a symbol, a representation of God’s constant presence in their lives, and a reminder of the 613 commandments of the Torah.

2. It’s Considered A Gift

In some Jewish communities, a father may pass his prayer shawl to his son. Also, it may be given to a son-in-law and sometimes, even a teacher to his student.

3. To Mark Significant Events

In events such as bar mitzvahs and weddings, the tallit prayer shawl may be presented as a gift to mark the special occasion.

4. During Special Days

A prayer shawl is frequently worn during special holidays such as Yom Kippur and Kol Nidre. Yom Kippur also referred to as the Day of Atonement, is the holiest day in the entire calendar. Day-long fasting and intensive prayer are some of the ways this holiday is celebrated.

Kol Nidre is the declaration said before the start of the evening service during Yom Kippur.

5. Worn During Weddings

Traditionally, the groom wears the Jewish prayer shawl on his shoulders during his wedding ceremony while standing under the chuppah (the wedding canopy). It is a common custom among the Portuguese and Spanish Jews as well as the Germans.

6. Burials

The prayer shawl often features during burials. Jewish men are wrapped in their tallits with one of the tassels cut off. Cutting off the tassel means that the tallit is no longer valid; this is because the deceased is no longer required to keep the commandment.

7.History

The prayer shawl has been an inseparable aspect of Jewish worship for centuries. Its significance can be gauged by a moving event that happened in 1493. That year, the Jews of Sicily were robbed of all their belongings and driven from their houses.

They petitioned the authorities for permission to take their prayer shawls with them before leaving the island. Unfortunately, their appeal was turned down.

 

The Jewish use the tallit prayer shawl as a representation of God’s constant presence in their lives. It is typically used during prayer and can also be seen on Yom Kippur or at synagogue services. The colors vary depending on how religious one follows Judaism; for example, believers may wear white while less devout might choose black instead.

The Prayer Shawl

The prayer shawl is a piece of clothing used by religious individuals during prayer. In Judaic religion, it is referred to as the tallit. It’s a large rectangular cloth made from wool, cotton, or synthetic material, with tassels called tzitzit on the four corners.

Traditional Jewish prayer shawls would contain four corners, unlike todays’, which do not have four corners. The Jewish prayer shawl’s tassels serve a particular purpose as a reminder of God’s commandments to His people and his ever presence in their lives.

Customs Surrounding The Prayer Shawl

The tallit prayer shawl is made in various fabrics; the popular ones are wool, silk, and sometimes rayon. It is often decorated using intricate patterns.

The prayer shawl is removed when going to the restroom due to the item’s symbolic nature. It represents God’s commands, and as you know, it is improper to take sacred scripture to the bathroom.

The Blue Thread

The Jewish prayer shawl incorporates the use of blue thread; this is according to the Torah. The blue thread was unfortunately phased out in some Jewish divisions after the jews scattered upon leaving Israel.

Prayer

One must recite the following prayer before putting on the Jewish prayer shawl:

“Baruch atah Adonai
Eloheinu melech ha olam
Asher kidishanu b’mitzvotav
Vitzivanu l’hitatef b’tzitzit.”

Blessed are you, Lord our God.
Ruler of the Universe
Who has sanctified us with your mitzvot
And commanded us to wrap ourselves in tzitzit.

Women are not allowed to wear the Jewish prayer shawl, according to Jewish law. Modern orthodox synagogues forbid women altogether wearing the tallit prayer shawl. However, this is not the case with non-orthodox.

The issue of women wearing the prayer shawl is a rather sore spot in the Jewish religion. While the non-orthodox do not prohibit women from wearing the piece, the more traditional jews frown upon the practice.
