The Tallit (or prayer shawl) is a very personal religious object. At the beginning of the service we drape the tallit over ourselves and recite this blessing. The tallit has the tzitit, corner fringes, which we are supposed to wear on any four corner garment we put on our bodies. These fringes direct our attention to the 613 mitzvot (commandments) that are mentioned in the Bible and that we are to follow. The tallit also helps us direct our thoughts inward to our prayers during the service.
