In person: From Sheep to Tzitzit: Part three of three

April 24, 2022    
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Please join Student Rabbi Faryn for a special workshop: a 3-session tzitzit making workshop, where we follow the process of making tzitzit from sheep to finished product.

For this session: What are the knots that we find on our tzitzit and what do they represent?Join Student Rabbi Faryn to answer this question and learn how to tie your own tzitzit to attach to your own ritual garment. During this session, you will have the opportunity to make a tallit katan (an undershirt that allows you to wear tzitzit throughout the day) or a tallit gadol (a traditional prayer shawl).

This session will take place in-person at Oseh Shalom.

Tzitzit are an ancient technology that Jews have used to connect to the Divine, as described in the 3rd paragraph of the Shema (Numbers 15:37-41). How would they have been spun? What are the issues around making them? How does one get from sheep to tzitzit and a tallit anyway? This special opportunity will give us the chance to root ourselves in text and then get hands on as we explore these questions and build a more meaningful and personal relationship with this powerful technology.
