Tzitzit

"And they shall make for themselves tzitzit"Numbers 15:38.

All males are required to attach tzitzit (fringes) to the corners of their four-cornered garments. One of the fringes on each corner is to be dyed with techelet (a special blue dye).

Translation of (the unabridged text of) Sefer Hamitzvot by Rabbi Berel Bell, member of the Rabbinical Court of Montreal and director of Teacher Training for the Jewish Learning Institute.

From "Sefer Hamitzvot in English," published by Sichos in English.
Daily Quote
Do you think that G-d needs to eat? Does not the verse proclaim, "Should I hunger, I would not tell you, for the world, and all it contains, is Mine... Do I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?" But it is not for My desire that you bring these offerings, [says G-d,] but for your own, as it is written (Leviticus 19:5), "For your own desire, you should offer it."
  –Talmud, Menachot 110a
