Tallit: Neshamah / Mayim (Soul / Water)
Commentators past and present have written about water as a metaphor for Torah. Both are necessary to sustain life, growth, and our gift of existence. This tallit design was inspired by the traditional blue stripes on many tallitot. What if those stripes were flowing water, their journey around my shoulders a reminder of the promise of Torah in each prayer that I sang? The Hebrew words “Neshamah / Mayim” intertwine on the back.
See the F.A.Q. page for more information about how Goren Judaica tallitot are made.
