    One individual had brought the world to the brink of destruction, but for the mercies of the Master of the Universe, who ordained that “the earth shall stand firm and shall not fall.” Such is the power of a single human being to do evil.

Atarah / Neckband

The atarah is a decorated neckband commonly embroidered at the head of the tallit and aimed to prevent the user from confusing the tallit’s upper and lower sides and placing the front tzitziot at his or her rear.

Yair Emanuel’s tallit neckbands are produced from the same materials used to decorate our tallitot: raw silk appliqué and hand embroidery.

We will be happy to combine a neckband of your choice in one of our tallitot.
