Tzitzit and Tallit I have a prayer shawl, having chosen to be Jewish, and converting from Christianity - but I don't know or didn't, much about usage. I knew to pray, and that prayer was self evaluation - but not that the fringes "had" to be blue (mine are white), thinking it is more important to have the item and do the actions, rather than what color it is..., nor that you are supposed to unravel them & tie them back together? So I am learning...thanks for the information. I have no friends that are Jewish religiously. I have friends that are racially Jewish. I just matched myself to what I felt was inside me at age 8. So God made me Jewish??
I should start applying it the right way; but within my home no one does. My home is "cool"...("much change") and I find that difficult. My ex husband is Christian. How do you just start practicing something new around a different philosophy?

Tzitzit means string? or tassel then? Reply
