    If it is not evil, we must use it for good. If it can be raised higher, we cannot leave it below. Everything He made, He made with purpose. Torat Menachem 5713, Matot-Massei 4–5, and countless other instances. […]

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.
