Every Tallit Tells a Tale
Facilitator: Reb Deb Smith
Whether the fabric of Judaism has always wrapped you in its embrace, or you have simply touched its fringes, these stories will hold a warm familiarity. A brief overview of the tallit and its significance as a ritual object will be given. A variety of beautiful tallitot from the facilitator’s personal collection will be displayed and their stories from her book by the same name will be shared. Be a part of this unique and engaging program! Bring your own tallit--Perhaps you have your own "Tallit Tale" to share during the program!
