From the Introduction:
“As far as we can tell, this book is the first attempt to bring together a wide variety of sources available in English on the subject of the tallit. In the pages that follow, you can find contributions by a Nobel Prize winner along with everyday people, rabbis and professors along with poets and Internet journalists. By design, we’ve included such different voices in hopes of producing a composite picture; just as the tallit is a very democratic garment, making the audacious statement that each one of us has within us the mark of royalty – while at the same time, enveloping us in a coziness that marks our relationship with God….
The tallit has been around for a few thousand years (as you will learn in some of the historically-oriented contributions herein), but there have also been some exciting developments in just the last few decades as the recipe for tekhelet – the blue dye for tzitzit – has apparently been rediscovered and women have begun (or begun again, as you will read!)
