Wearing Your Prayer Shawl in The Torah and Tying Options
Tallits are traditionally worn on weekday, Shabbat, and Holidays during the morning prayers. It is a specific Torah command to wear tzizit (fringes) on a four cornered garment, therefore all have 4 knotted fringes called tzizit that are tied on each corner. There are a few customs on how the tzizit are tied and we offer all options with our custom tying service. A classic talit is woven in wool and most carry a beautiful neckband called an “atarah” that may or may not feature the prayer to dawn the prayer shawl. 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 to have kavanah (focus) on God. It is for this reason, if you plan on covering your head with the tallis you’ll need a larger size , generally 36″ to 55″ is recommended. The width of your prayer shawl from arm to arm remains generally the same between 64 to 75″ (standard 72″).

- When wearing your shawl first inspect that the 4 cornered fringes are in tact otherwise you’ll be blessing a non valid prayer shawl which is reciting the name of god in vain while the mitzvah is not performed at all. If you have 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 can be seen here.
- We often are asked about choosing a size. Your size is actually a personal preference. Most all prayer shawls 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 a prayer shawl 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 and are well worn for those enjoying a prayer shawl down the length of one’s body and lifting the prayer shawl on either arm over the shoulders. Large sizes are common for the religious community and people who enjoy a royal look in wearing their prayer shawl.

Classic style for Women and men are made of wool or a blend of materials with striping in Black, Navy, or White. Our classic prayer Shawls are machine made in Israel for quality and economic pricing. They are soft wool, dyed white, and vibrant feel and look on it’s striping. Designer ones come in wool, silk, Shiffon, and blended materials. The higher end prayer shawls are hand made by select artists and hence may take 1-3 weeks to complete depending on style. Fringes of the four corners are called tzitzit and worn as Talit Katan as well. Often you will have 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 tzizit are turquoise colored strings that is commanded to be had 1 in 4 strings per corner. The bible commands that these Techelet strings be from a sea animal named “chilazon”. Over thousands of years, this sea creature was lost due to identification, and the common practice was to wear all white strings. Today, there has been a rebirth of the techelet dye with a sea creature that has been identified as the “Chilazon” by many authorities in Israel. Hence, we offer the only most authoritative Techelet strings available from Israel. These strings are known to slightly run in color in the wash, and it is recommended to hand wash.Finally, we offer an exclusive rich personalization by way of embroidery on all our classic bags as well as most of our designer theme and silk ones. Personalization can be done in Gold, Silver, Navy, or other preferred threads and can be sewn at the corner or across the middle to provide you with your unique prayer shawl. Wear it in Good health !
