Transcript of Tallit

Tallit MATERIALS WHY? The prohibition against combining linen and wool
is found in Parshat K'doshim, Leviticus 19:19. Among the list of acts Israelites should and shouldn't do, we are told, "You shall not let your cattle mate with a different kind; you shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed; you shall not put on cloth from a mixture of two kinds of material." It is also written in Deuteronomy 22:11-12, "You
shall not wear cloth combining wool and linen. You shall make tassels on the four corners of the garment with which you cover yourself." 1 2 Linen Wool Shatnez = Hybrid urex snails were used to dye the thread blue for the tzitzit M TZITZIT 7 8 11 13 10 5 6 5 OR Instructed to put tzitzit in the corners of our garments
Look upon them
Be reminded of God's mitzvot
Fulfill them WHEN? A person's outer garment was a 4-cornered "robe," = tzitzit fringes were worn at all times.

A tallit is worn for morning prayer services (Shacharit) and additional services (Musaf).

During afternoon services (Minchah), only the leader must wear a tallit.

In some communities, the leader of services also wears a tallit for evening services (ma'ariv).

We are commanded to look at them and be reminded of mitzvot, so we should see them by the light of the sun, not artificial light. WHO? Men over the age of 13 (in Conservative and Reform synagogues).

In Orthodox synagogues, only married men.

Optional for girls and women over the age of 12 in Conservative and Reform congregations. 1. Take one long tzitzit string and three shorter strings, stretching them out side by side.
