Wearing Your Tallit
Traditionally we wear a tallit on weekday, Shabbat, and Holidays during the morning prayers. It is a specific Torah command to wear tzitzit (fringes) on a four corner garment, therefore all are 4 knot fringes tzitzit each set with a special tie on each corner. There are a few customs on how the tzitzit tie and we offer all options with our custom tying service. A classic talit weave is in wool and most carry a beautiful neckband the “atarah” that may or may not feature the prayer on the neckband atarah. To assist in keeping your shawl on your shoulders without slipping, many people purchase a beautiful set of clips that neatly clip in front of the chest holding both section together over the shoulders.
In Numbers 15:39 we find the commandment to wear the tallis “and it shall be a tassle for you to look at and not spy after your own lust of heart and eyes. Covering ones head with the shawl is a way of focusing ones eyes and heart not to stray after ones lusts but rather have kavanah (focus) on God. It is for this reason, when planning to cover your head with the tallis choose a larger size. We recommend 36″ to 55”. The width of your talit from arm to arm remains generally the same between 64 to 75″ (standard 72″).

We often receive inquiries about choosing a size. Your size is actually a personal preference. Most all prayer talits are 72″ to 80″ in width spanning across from arm to arm. The length down the back is where sizes vary. If you like to wear yours as a scarf draping over the shoulders, then size 18/72″ and 24/72″ are ideal. If you would like it going half way down your back then 28″ to 32″ is ideal. Larger sizes such as 36″ to 47″ are longer and on average will reach lower back to upper leg area. Size 50″ – 70″ are usually the largest for those who enjoy wearing a prayer shawl down the length of one’s body. At this size, one lifts the prayer shawl over the shoulders on either arm .
While large sizes are common for the religious community, people who enjoy a royal look tend to purchase a larger size. View a complete Sizing Chart under each talit in our catalog. Be sure to visit our learning center for the meaning & blessing.
Fringes on the four corners are called tzitzit and wear as a Talit Katan as well a tallit. Often we provide an option for thick vs. regular tzitzis or tzitzit. While not necessary, generally, the thicker tzitzit is simply a preference. They can be easier to last in a wash, and more tangible for holding in prayer. Techelet tzitzit are turquoise color strings that is a command to be 1 in 4 strings per corner. The bible commands that these Techelet strings be from a sea animal החילזון. Over thousands of years, this sea creature lost identity, and so the common practice continues wearing all white strings.
Today, there is a rebirth of the techelet dye in use of a sea creature whose identity is known as the “Chilazon” by many authorities in Israel. Hence, we offer the only most authoritative Techelet strings available from Israel. These strings may slightly run in color in the wash, and so we recommend an initial hand wash of strings on the first few washes.
Hand Tying Tzitzit: Ashkenazic & Sephardic
Choose from our collection in the Sephardic tradition, with our traditional middle eastern patterns and colors , we offer authentic Sephardic tying of tzitzit strings with and without techelet blue threads.
Furthermore, when wearing your shawl first inspect that the 4 corner fringes are in tact. If not, you’ll be blessing a non valid talit. Hence, reciting the name of god in vain while not performing the mitzvah. If yours features the blessing on the neckband (atarah) you may hold it in front of you and recite the blessing in Hebrew prior to wearing the shawl. The blessing or Bracha for a tallit is shown above.
Finally, we offer exclusive rich embroidery on all our classic bags as well as most tallits. We personalize in Gold, Silver, Navy, or other preferable colors. It can be sewn at the corner or across the middle to provide you with your unique tallis.
