  • Still Rock Bottom October 2, 2014
    Sometimes reaching higher is not enough. Sometimes you need to touch the very core of your soul. And there are two ways to do that: One is by hitting rock bottom. The other is by realizing that as high as you may have climbed, relative to where you really belong, this is still rock bottom. Maamar Vekibel Hayehudim 5738. […]

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.
