For centuries the prayer shawl, or tallit (tah-LEET), has been a part of Jewish worship. At the four corners are the tzitzit (TZEET-tzeet), long fringes that serve as a reminder to cherish and keep the Lord’s commandments as instructed in the book of Numbers. These beautiful prayer shawls are handmade by weavers among the Beta Israel in Ethiopia – in the very communities we help. Colors vary, and all are finely crafted garments to use and treasure as a reminder of your special help to these needy people. Dimensions: 70” x 25.5”.
