  • The Poor Man's Advantage September 26, 2016
    Why is it the poor simpleton who has the wisdom to choose the King alone? Because the others sit in the royal waiting chambers and are charmed by the gold and silver, the velvet and silk that they find there. Those treasures, those become their requests. But the poor simpleton has no appreciation for treasures. […]

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.
