The Tallit: Focus Your Prayer Time


The tallit is a religious garment that can enhance your prayer life and focus your prayer time. The tallit’s purpose is to envelop the wearer in prayer both spiritually and physically. When wrapped in the prayer shawl you feel the name of G-d, the house of G-d, the prophecy of Israel and His miracles all flooding over you.


What is the Tallit?


The tallit or prayer shawl can be made from any fabric and have any design. The most traditional fabric for a prayer shawl is wool and the traditional colors are white with blue or black stripes. However, the most significant part of the tallit is not the shawl itself, but the fringes on the four corners. The fringes are called tzitzit and it is these that G-d’s commandment specifies the pious to wear.


The Lord said to Moses, “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘Throughout the generations to come you are to make tassels on the corners of your garments, with a blue cord on each tassel. You will have these tassels to look at and so you will remember all the commands of the Lord…’” Numbers 15:37-38


G-d designed the prayer shawl and it is the way G-d has communicated with His faithful. The tzitzit are formed with a very specific knotting process. The knots represent the 613 mitzvot or commandments listed in the Torah which are the principles of Biblical Law. Therefore, the Word of G-d is transmitted to the faithful through the tallit and the 613 mitzvot found in the tzitzit.


Who can use the Tallit?


Traditionally, every Jewish man from his Bar Mitzvah at the age of thirteen wears a tallit during prayer. More and more the prayer shawl has become popular amongst Believers. Both men and women take pleasure in wearing the tallit during personal pray and congregational prayer. Believers find encouragement in wearing the tallit prayer shawl as a Jewish man, Yeshua wore his piously.


If heart and motives are pure, one can reap the spiritual benefits from wearing the tallit. The prayer shawl provides a very special private place for prayer. It can separate the wearer from the distractions of their environment and focus entirely on the Word of G-d. Using a prayer shawl can also strengthen someone’s commitment to regular prayer. Cloaked in the prayer shawl we reflect on G-d’s commandments, protection, and constant love.
