Where to Get Matching Tallit and Tefillin Bags

Tallit and tefillin are some of the items essential in the practice of the Jewish religion and culture. That tallit, or prayer shawl, and tefillin, or phylacteries, remind Jews that God’s word enters both the heart and the head. Male Jews wear both the prayer shawl and phylacteries for morning prayer, but just the tallit for afternoon and evening prayers. Sometimes, they also wear the kippah (head covering). It’s a symbolic reminder for Jews that God is always with them, and they must keep God’s laws.

What is Tallit?

The tallit is a prayer shawl worn by the Jews. In terms of form, the tallit is a shawl made from cotton, wool, or even silk on rare occasions. Its most characteristic feature is the borderline fringes on two opposite sides that are knotted and twined. Most often, it is white, with black stripes running down two sides. Each fringe is made of four strands looped over to make eight strands in total.

The tallit is draped over the shoulders like a cape with two corners in front of the wearer and two at the back. Only the men are obligated to wear the tallit.

Technically, tallit must be worn all day, but it’s not practical in today’s world. So, a garment known as the tzitzit was created – a poncho-like garment worn under street clothing, which is also referred to as the small tallit.

It’s worn all day on Yom Kippur, and in other communities, the chazzan (prayer leader) wears the tallit during other services.

What is Tefillin?

A set of tefillin

Tefillin, on the other hand, are a pair of black leather boxes containing Hebrew parchment scrolls. The set includes two: one for the arm and one for the head. Each piece contains three main components: the scrolls, box, and strap. Inside the tefillin are handwritten parchments with texts from four passages from the Torah, calling upon the Israelites to keep God’s words in mind.

The Torah instructs the Jewish men to bind the tefillin onto their head and upper arm every weekday. These are also worn during morning services, except on Shabbat and festivals.

The tefillin are worn on the biceps, and the strap is tied with a special knot wound by the wearer seven times around the forearm and hand. It’s put on the left arm for right-handed men and on the right for those who are left-handed. The second box is worn on the forehead by the hairline, with straps going around the back of the head. It is connected at the top of the neck using a special knot and hangs in the front on each side.

According to Jewish tradition, all Jewish males over the age of bar mitzvah (13) must perform the mitzvah of tefillin. They can fulfill the mitzvah by putting it at any time during the day. While wearing it, they must recite a blessing, and it is customary to read the Shema prayer.
