8. What is a prayer shawl? And why do we use a prayer shawl?

A prayer vestment in Judaism, which is a specially made rectangular veil. It is seen as a vestment in the sanctity of the precepts of the Torah and symbolic submission to the will of God.

General information
In ancient times talith – cape, cloak – was a rectangular veil that served as a part of everyday clothes; The brushes were attached to its corners according to the biblical prescription for tzitzit. Such a cloak was usually made of wool or flax. The more expensive form of thalita resembled a Roman pallium, worn by rich people and teachers of the law. By the time of the Middle Ages talit as a part of everyday clothing gradually came out of use and survived

9. What is a prayer shawl made of? And what does it look like?

As a rule, talith is made of wool (from sheep’s wool), or linen, cotton, silk, and today even synthetic white fabric (especially religious Jews prefer semi-bleached coarse woolen fabric) with several woven blue, blue, black-blue or black stripes ; On the four corners of talite, brushes-tzitsite are attached to special holes. Often in the middle of one of the longitudinal sides a rectangular piece of cloth is sewn, distinguishing the upper and outer sides of the talith from the bottom and inner; This piece of cloth, which is sometimes stitched with silver threads, is called atar (crown, crown) and when clothed in thallite serves as a kind of collar. At some times the Benedictines are embroidered, which should be pronounced before wearing vestments (sometimes the Benedictions are not only embroidered on the attack). Often talith (especially silk) is decorated with embroideries, and usually along its narrow (side) sides a long fringe is sewn.

10. How do you wear it? What do you do in prayer time?

Customs of putting on talite
First talite is thrown in such a way as to cover also the head, and all four of its angles are thrown over the left shoulder (by the movement called “Ismail tack” – atifat ishmeelim), then the talite is lowered on the shoulders, so that its corners hang freely On the sides. During the morning prayer (Shaharit), it is customary to press the talith brushes to the eyes and kiss them three times during the utterance of the last section of the Shma prayer, which refers to the prescription for tzitzit.

Talith is worn during the Shaharit prayer daily except for the Ninth Ava (on this day they only clothe in the prayer Mincha prayers) and Yom Kippur (when Talit is put on for all prayers from Kolindra and on). In some places the Khazzan wears Talith during the prayers of Minha and Maariv, and the father on the circumcision of his son wears the tallit during the whole procedure. In Orthodox Judaism, talismans can only be worn by men, in conservative and reformist men and women, but the Talmud does not require it to be worn by women.

In different communities, the customs associated with talit are different from each other.

In Ashkenazim, children who have not yet reached the bar mitzvah age are dressed in a small, childish talisman, and unmarried men pray without talith. In most Sephardic and Eastern communities, unmarried women wear talith. Many Kabbalists and rabbis usually wear talith all day long to study the Torah. It is customary for Sephardim to wear it at a wedding. In the reformist synagogue talith, having the form of a narrow scarf worn around the neck, is part of the liturgical vestments of the rabbi and Khazan; Talith also wears out to read the Torah; For the rest of the liturgical participants, talith is not required.

All Jews also take a man to bury in his talisman, from which tzitzite is removed or cut.
