This unique white silk Tallit prayer shawl, tallit, from the fine Israeli artists at Galilee Silks, is hand painted and dyed with hues of maroon, orange, pink, and green. Printed on the hand dyed “atara” panel are the words to the Hebrew tallit prayer, recited before one dons the sacred garment. As the late Jewish actor Leonard Nimoy once wrote, “A life is like a garden.” Celebrate a momentous event in someone’s life, be it a bat mitzvah, wedding, or other joyous occasion, by giving them a tallit that represents this flowery garden of life.
The tallit prayer shawl is worn daily by Jewish people for the morning Shacharit prayer. Unlike tefillin, the tallit is worn even on the Shabbat (Sabbath) holiday. The writings of Rabbi Moshe Feinstein, a monumental twentieth century Orthodox rabbinic authority, have been been interpreted to mean that while women are not required to wear the tallit as men are, they are not prohibited either, so long as their shawl can be differentiated from a masculine Judaica garment. (Cross-dressing is prohibited by Jewish law.)
