Oh! The Joy of Buying a Tallit with Family and Grandparents

I love my job. Watching the tears of joy on a family members’ face as they see their child or grandchild in a tallit for the first time is the most gratifying experience. In the past eight years when I have been selling tallitot to my customers, whether it be online or in my studio, […]
