UNDERSTANDING YOUR TALLIT
Sizes 24″ or 50″ by 72″.The crown (neck) reads “Blessed are You, O Lord our God, King of the Universe, Who has commanded us to wear the tzitzit (fringe).” The corners in Hebrew say “God will bring us to Zion joyfully”
God instructed the Israelites to attach fringes (called “tzitzit” in Hebrew) to each of the four corners of their garments so that when they saw them, they would remember all of God’s commandments and do them (Numbers 15:38-40; Deuteronomy 22:12). Centuries later when fashions changed and garments no longer had four corners, the Jewish people created the prayer shawl (Tallit) so that they could fulfill God’s command to wear tzitzit. The prayer shawl has become the time-honored Jewish tradition of submission to God’s will revealed in his Word (the Torah).
