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 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.
