Tallit and Tzitzit

Tallit is a Jewish prayer shawl with four corners worn by both men and women during morning services. The garment should be large enough to drape over the shoulders and constructed entirely of wool rather than a blend of wool and linen. The Tzizit, the intricate fringes knotted to each corner of the Tallit in line with Torah laws, are the religious significance of the Tallit. The Tallit and Tzizit are intended to serve as reminders of the Mitzvot, as well as to prepare the mind and heart for prayer and inspire reverence for God.
