Tallit: Stars in the Sky
Growing up in a city, the rare occasions when I could actually see stars at night were wonderful treats. This tallit design imagines the words of the first blessing before the evening Shema prayer as stars arranged in swirling designs that herald the entrance and exit of dusk and dawn.
Praised are You, Lord our God, Sovereign of the universe whose word brings the evening dusk. You open the gates of dawn with wisdom, change the day’s divisions with understanding, set the succession of seasons, and arrange the stars in the sky according to Your will. You create day and night, rolling light away from darkness and darkness away from light, Eternal God. Your rule shall embrace us forever. Praised are you, Lord, for each evening’s dusk.
