  • Talking to Himself January 26, 2015
    He talks with Himself, entertained by His own thoughts. The thoughts imply a background, which is the world. But the Torah, those are the thoughts themselves. And we? We are the self with whom He speaks. […]

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.
