  • Beyond Sincerity October 21, 2014
    Sincerity is not enough. You have to do the right thing. Why is it this way? Why can't we be judged by our intentions alone? So that we will know that we are small, and truth is very large. It is truth that stands at the center, and we that orbit about it. Tanya, chapter 38. […]

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.

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.
