Among traditional Sephardic Jews, the prevalent custom is to wear a white-on-white tallit, but many other Jews also choose a solid white tallit with white stripes for aesthetic reasons, sometimes as a Shabbos tallit, a special tallit for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur or a wedding tallit to be worn at the chuppah.
Tashbetz White Tallit
Traditional white-on-white tallit in lightweight wool. Features textured, raised-grid weave that helps keep the tallit in place on your shoulders. This unique weave makes the Tashbetz a traditional tallit that is very soft to the touch and a pleasure to wear.
The name “Tashbetz” is taken from Exodus 28:4, which refers to “a tunic of chequer work.” Tashbetz is also the name of a famous responsa by Rabbi Shimon ben Tzemach Duran of 14th century Spain.
