About Tallitot

Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia says about the Tallit

A tallit (Hebrew: טַלִּית‎) (taleth or talet in Sephardic Hebrew and Ladino) (tallis in Ashkenazic Hebrew and Yiddish) is a Jewish prayer shawl worn in the synagogue on Shabbat and holidays, and while reciting morning prayers (Shacharit), as well as afternoon (Mincha) and evening prayers (Ma'ariv) by many Sephardi Jews.

The tallit has special twined and knotted fringes known as tzitzit attached to its four corners. The tallit can be made of any materials except a mixture of wool and linen interwoven which is strictly prohibited by the Torah. Most traditional tallitot (plural of tallit) (tallesim in Ashkenazic Hebrew) are made of wool.

Galilee Silks creates traditional classic wool tallits as well as modern tallitot in wool, silk and polyester decorated with other delicate fabrics to give the tallis extra allure.

Every tallit is made with the utmost attention and intention with eye for the smallest detail.

All of Galilee Silks prayer shawls come with a matching tallis bag and kippa.
