Parasha Nitzavim and Parasha VaYelech are read together on regular years and read separately on leap year.
Both have been designed here as one tallit. A tallit can be re-designed for either parasha separately.
Parasha Nitzavim discusses God's covenant.
Parasha VaYelech deals with new leadership and the final preparations for entering the promised land..

The neckband of the tallit is decorated with the traditional blessing, hand painted with gold-outlined, crowned, Hebrew lettering.
The tallit is shown on a background of cream wool blend. The tallit tzitziot (threads) are handspun.
