Tzitzit (Tallit Katan)

Tzitzit (Tallit Katan or Tzitzits)

In ancient times most of the clothes had four corners. In the past, they would fulfill the mitzvah by tying tzitzits in the four corners of the garment. A tallit katan is made from cotton or wool (or synthetic substances. Wool is a material favored by most Hasidim and Sephardim). a tallit katan is often known just as “tzitzit.”  A tallit katan has a small hole in every corner of the garment in which a thread of woolen tzitzit is threaded. Chassidic Jews have two aligned holes in each corner, a custom based on Chabad (The holes stand against each other.)
