    Our minds sit nestled in a pocket of natural events, sewn with the thread of outrageous miracles. The pocket protects us: Exposed to the raw light of those miracles, we would be paralyzed with awe, incapable of continuing with life. Tanya, Book II, chapter 4. Shavuot 5737:23. 19 Kislev 5734:3.

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. Some have developed the custom of adding an atara made of embroidered silver threads, in order to glorify the mitzvah of donning the tallit.

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.
