The Tallit, or Prayer Shawl, is the most recognizable sign of Jewish worship. It is worn at prayer, or a by a groom at his wedding. The origin of the Tallit lies in Numbers 15 calling for the attachment of fringes to the four-cornered garments, worn during Biblical times, as a reminder of the 613 commandments of the Lord.
Today, a growing number of Believers consider the use of a Tallit as most important. Wrapping oneself with the prayer shawl is meant to assist in focusing on prayer. It is symbolic to wrapping oneself with G-d’s Love as one prays.
