10 Beautiful Bar Mitzvah Tallit Sets the Boy Will Never Forget (2018)

I remember the day my parents got me my first Tallit for my Bar Mitzvah…

A week before my 13th birthday, my dad walked into my room with a Tallit bag in his hand and said: “Son, I’ve got a surprise for you”.

He opened the Tallit bag – and out came this gorgeous Blue & White Tallit with golden accents on the stripes.

I was awestruck.

My dad said: “here try it on”.

I recited the Tzitzit blessing and put on my Tallit for the very first time.

That’s the first time I saw my dad with tears in his eyes (even though he won’t admit it).

Fast forward almost 20 years later (boy. I’m getting old) – and I still remember that day as if it were yesterday, AND I still wear that very same Tallit every morning when I pray Shacharit.

Needless to say – getting a young man his first Tallit for his Bar Mitzvah is a BIG moment.

And today, I’m going to “pay it forward” and hopefully help you and the Bar Mitzvah boy be as lucky as I was.

But what’s the connection between these two Jewish traditions? 

Let’s get to the bottom of this (and bust a few myths along the way).
