  • Ignoring Faults August 25, 2016
    Until after the final redeemer arrives, there is no person on earth without some fault. Where this person fails on one count, another fails elsewhere. We don’t appreciate someone else prying into our faults and underlining each one with a red pencil. So we know it is not right to do the same with another. […]

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.
