THIS IS GOOD STUFF, ALSO MAKES A GREAT TEACHING TOOL!

  1. Each set that I make consists of 4 individual tassels (1 set of 4 TZITZIT)
  2. The initial loop (for attaching the TZITZIT to a TALLIT, belt loop, or garment) is about 3" long.   This will accomodate a Tallit hole that is up to 1.5" from the edge.  (see the picture below for installation instructions)
  3. Requests for custom styles and colors can also be done (I have several variations listed, but if you have a request, please contact me)
  4. Please contact me in advance  if you have any questions about a customized C O L O R S request    (see color guide to the right for ideas)
  5. For a FREE teaching LESSON on "The TALLIT and TZITZIT" go to: www.holywordcafe.com/tours (resources page) for your convenience, here are the links:

    The TALLIT and TZITZIT - Lesson (4-Page Version)
    -
    The TALLIT and TZITZIT - Bible (Verses with pics for reference) 
  6. IDEAS: Not only are TZITZIT worn on the four corners of a garment, but some people give these as gifts, hang them on the wall, attach them to their car miror, place one on a key ring, attach one to a ring with business card-sized Bible memory verses, use as a Bible bookmark, hang them in the office, on the desk, worn on a belt loop, on and on the examples go.
  7. The TZITZIT is desinged to be seen, and when seen, it reminds us to do the commandments of G-d.
  8. Your set will be hand made only from 100% mercerized cotton
  9. Payment is due immediately, however if you plan to buy other items, you may combine them into one invoice for one payment.  Please do not abuse this.
  10. Thanks for looking!  Shalom & Happy Bidding!

INTRODUCTION:

In Numbers 15:37-41, Deuteronomy 22:12,  G-d (YHVH) commanded Moses for the Children of Israel to put “fringes” on the four corners of their garments.  The Hebrew words are TZITZIT in Numbers 15:37-41 (which has a numerical value of 600); and  GEDILIM in Deuteronomy 22:12.  Ashkenazi, Sephardic and Chassidic tassels have 5 knots and 8 chords which equals 13 (600+13=613).  613 is the number of MITZVOT (commandments) found in the TORAH (the first 5 books of the TANAK - Hebrew Bible).  Karaite and Two-House tassels have 12 strings and are made into "chains" or "braids."

In the Ashkenazi, Sephardic, and Chassidic styles, the long chord is called the shamash (servant) which wraps around all of the other strings.  The number of shamash spirals between the knots is also interesting.  Various Traditions signify one of the Names of G-d (YHVH) differently.



ATTACHING:

I have had some questions on attaching TZITZIT to a TALLIT or Belt Loop.
