The tallit is the Jewish prayer shawl, a fulfillment of God’s ancient instruction that Israelites attach fringes (called tzitziyot) to the four corners of their outer garment (mantle) as a reminder that they were to keep all God’s commandments (Numbers 15:38-40). In Bible days, the tallit was worn all the time; however, for centuries it has been worn by the Jews during times of prayer.
Many Christians have found the that the prayer shawl has significance to them as well as to the Jewish people. Some churches use the tallit as a parament to drape either pulpit or altar. Many Christian women also use a prayer shawl in worship exercises, including liturgical dance.
You can purchase from Holy Land Gifts the finest tallits made in Israel by Israeli craftsmen. We have only the best in a variety of colors and designs, including tallits created especially for Christian men and women. We can also supply you with tallit bags used for storing your prayer shawl.
