The Jewish tradition is filled with special Jewish customs, prayers, and rituals. 

To properly follow the Jewish traditions, we need to have certain Jewish items in our possession. These Jewish items are also known as Judaica.

Here are a few common examples of Jewish traditions, and the Judaica items we need to perform them.

  • Our daily prayer consists of putting on a Tallit & Teffilin.
  • To welcome the Shabbat, we have several traditions and Jewish items: lighting Shabbat candles, Kiddush with a wine cup, and Hamotzi with a Challah board (among others).
  • We use a washing cup to wash our hands before we eat or after we wake up in the morning (Netilat Yadayim).

And a LOT more.

In this section, you’ll find all the Judaica guides and reviews you need to lead a meaningful Jewish lifestyle.

I opened my Tallit bag for the first time, and there it was: a gorgeous Tallit with blue, white and gold stripes, with the Tzitzit blessing written in Hebrew on the Atara.

That was almost 20 years ago, and I still wear the same Tallit every morning when I pray Shachris (!).

Why am I telling you this story?

Because I want to illustrate how much of an impact one authentic Tallit can have if you choose correctly.

And that’s exactly why I wrote this – to help you choose correctly…
