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!

    Never knew what the knots and windings represented. Thanks for the beginning of my summer education.
