Have you been wanting to make a tallit for yourself or for your child’s bar/bat mitzvah – or would your teen like to make their own? Would you like to embellish a tallit you already own?

Learn a bit about the religious requirements and history of tallit, how to decide what size of tallit you like, how to choose fabric, and how to get started with designing and planning your tallit. The class will emphasize making the tallit meaningful by incorporating fabrics with personal meaning such as your father’s ties, a grandmother’s crochet doilies, a favorite t-shirt. Learn about the difference between Rabbanite and Karaite tzitzit, and get ideas about how to make tzitzit tying meaningful.

Free to members of Shir Tikvah; non-member fee is $18.
