Tallit - Prayer Shawls

Tallit, the Jewish garment

A prayer shawl is a rectangular garment with four strands of tzitzit. Men wear the prayer shawl during prayers in the synagogue. There is also a unique prayer shawl called “Tallit Katan,” which is worn regularly and on a regular basis on the body, to fulfill the mitzvah of Tzitzit throughout the day. Halachically speaking, the tallit is a mitzvah.

The prayer shawl is usually made from pure woolen wool since according to the Shulchan Aruch, only a garment made of wool or linen bound by the tzitzit of the Torah. The obligation to impose tzitzis on other clothes made of synthetic yarn, according to individual opinions, is only rabbinical. However, they make acrylic and silk talitot.

The source of the commandment written in the Torah:

… “And do unto them a glimpse of the wings of their breasts, and of their hair; And we gave to the twinkle of the wing, a twine of bread. And you shall see them, and you shall remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do them with them … ” (Bamidbar 15: 4-5)

The purpose of the commandment, as reflected in the Torah, is to make a person remember all the mitzvot, and to distance him from giving up after the heart and the eyes, that is to keep him away from evil deeds. The prayer shawl isolates the worshiper from his surroundings and makes it easier for him to concentrate in prayer.

In Ashkenazic communities, it is customary to wear a prayer shawl only after the wedding. The source of the custom is the study of the juxtaposition of the parashiyot of “strands shall you make” to “and that a man shall take a woman.” On the other hand, the Mishnah Brura, which was adopted with great affection among most of the greatest Ashkenazi sages, came out against this custom and wrote that “this is a strange custom, and as he puts it:” A man who does not marry a woman will sit down and remove the mitzvah of tzitzis ?! ” 10). This is why the (unmarried) boys wear a small prayer shawl.

The custom of the Sephardim is to wrap themselves in a tallit from the Bar Mitzvah age and even before that. In the Yemenite communities, it is customary to wear a tallit from the age of education (age 5 or so). In Yemen itself all the Jews wrapped themselves in a prayer shawl all day long, while outside their home the prayer shawl was folded in a narrow fold and placed on their shoulders when they were there. In Israel the, custom was completely abolished.
