Sara-Beth came to pick up her tallit and tie the tzitzit today. She was very happy with her tallit.
As someone who has spent lots of time in summer camp, the half hitch knot used to tie the tzitzit was familiar to her from her friendship bracelet making childhood.She chose to use silk for her tzitzit. The silk Sara-Beth chose looks a bit like butcher's twine, but it has a beautiful sheen. Did I mention that she was happy?
I also gave her her engagement gift. A challa cover made out of a melange of silks. the text comes from the Friday night services.
