Tallitot
  • Times Are Changing August 2, 2015
    The times in which we live are not ordinary times. Everything is suddenly changing, rearranging itself. Technology leaps ahead daily, affecting the way we do things, how we communicate, our concept of life and the universe. While an old world struggles to cling to its self-defeating patterns, the stage is set for a world as it is meant to be. […]

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.
