Since we work with both of the leading tallit makers in Israel, Mishkan Hatchelet and Talitania, we are able to offer a wide selection of options. Some dealers will tell you that Mishkan Hatchelet has higher standards than Talitania, while others maintain Talitania’s tallitot are superior. The truth is that they have very similar product lines; in some cases Mishkan Hatchelet takes the lead, while with certain tallits Talitania makes a nicer product — in my humble opinion.
One of those is known as “Tallit Shabbat” in Hebrew. We market it as “Hamefoar Prestige.”
I’ve read enough for now.
Please show me the tallit! >>>
Recently we receive an inquiry from a prospective customer in New York who had some very keen questions.
Shalom. I hope you are well. I am looking at the two Hamefoar talleisim on your website: the one made by Mishkan Hatchelet (Hamefoar Nonslip Tallit) and the one made by Talitnia (the Hamefoar Prestige Tallit). I have a few questions.
1. What is the difference, other than price? 2. Do they come with an atara? Which one? Can I substitute it? How long for delivery to New York City? Thank you very much, Joel
I explained to Joel that the fabric on Hamefoar Prestige is slightly thicker and it’s a different weave. Some people would say it’s nicer than Tallit Hamefoar, but I think that’s debatable. The main black band on Hamefoar Prestige is thicker, like on the Kmo Turkish and the Echt Turkish talleisim. And Hamefoar Prestige comes with lining and side bands.
Also, note that Hamefoar Prestige comes with double-knotted fringes.
