The siddur has a prayer said after donning the Tallit, …the children of mankind shelter beneath your wings. This image of shelter/sukkah/ shechina is the kinesthetic pleasure I strive to impart to people who wear my tallit. It is the warmth, protection and security of parental love and concern that matches fabric, texture, color and content with an individual’s dream of their ideal tallit. To a B’nai Mitzvah, the process is designing his/her Tallit becomes a personal statement that often encourages a deeper commitment of Judaism. The design process includes opportunities for suggestions and kibitzing by parents and friends, yet all final decisions are made by the wearer.
