Do It Yourself Summer Series: Tzitzit

diy2 2014 SUMMER SERIES 

Over the summer months, I will be posting a series of “Do It Yourself” Jewish videos and lessons. This week, the Torah teaches us to wear tzitzit – the knotted fringes on the tallit (prayer shawl). Below, you will find a short video from Jewish educator and artist, Nancy Katz, which shows you how tzitzit are made. You will also find a piece by the late Rabbi Louis Jacobs (no relation!) explaining the symbolism of the tzitzit and why they contain so many twisted and knotted strings. Enjoy and Shabbat Shalom!
