Women prefer the modern variation of the prayer shawl while men still seem reluctant to part with their traditional prayer shawl. The Tallit is a shawl that is worn by Jewish men during their morning prayers, and during certain holidays. The Tallit has fringe on the four corners, which are called tzitzit, which can contains a blue thread which reminds them of their devotion to God, as was commanded to Moses. By tradition, the Tallit is presented as a gift to the son by the father. The talilit worn to create a personal space to express devotion to God. The Emmanuel Tallit is often decorated with the beautiful tree of life designs, or designs of the 12 tribes of Israel, or appliquéd pomegranates. They are often made of raw silk, organza, wool, or linen, and come in beautiful colors and sizes. By tradition, women were not required to wear the Tallis; however, it’s become more common for women to wear a Woman Tallit during the prayers.
