The Rich Tradition of the Tallis.

Wikipedia defines a tallis as:

a Jewish prayer shawl that is worn over the outer clothes during prayers. The tallit has special twined and knotted fringes known as tzitzit attached to its four corners. Most traditional tallitot are made of wool. Tallitot are often first worn by children on their Bar Mitzvahs.
As traditions evolve, and women seek the same spiritual fulfillment, it is becoming  common today to see young girls and women of all ages in reform and conservative synagogues donning tallit in beautiful, feminine colors and fabrics. At Precious Heirlooms, it is our pleasure and passion to beautify the mitzvah by a creating custom tallit for you.

We look forward to working with you. In addition to our standard tallitot, Precious Heirlooms can create a custom crafted tallis beginning with a blank canvas. It can be designed in any color pallette, using images that depict your passions, hobbies, background or flair, woven with metallic threads and adornments that delight you, or a simple garment of tailored tradition.

Did you know...

In the Orthodox tradition, males do not wear tallit until they are married, and often the tallit is a gift from the bride. 

A beautiful tradition of enwrapping the bride and groom in a tallit during the marriage ceremony has now been adopted from the Sephardic tradition by many rabbis.
