In Parasha Pinhas, a census is taken to ensure that each tribe receives the land it deserves according to its size. The responsibility for the Israelites passes from Moses to Joshua.
Tallit Band I
The Zelophad sisters bring their case of inheritance up with Moses, and win a victory, establishing the order of inheritance to include women.
Translation of Hebrew (Numbers 27, 4):
"Why should the name of our father be done away from among his family, because he had no son? Give unto us a possession among the brethren of our father."
Tallit Band II
Moses passes responsibility of the Israelites to Joshua in a ceremony including the high priest, Eleazar.
Translation of Hebrew (Numbers 27, 22-23):
"Joshua, the son of Nun, who stands before thee, he shall go in thither: encourage thou him, for he shall cause Israel to inherit it."
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.
A matching tallit bag, tefillin bag and yarmulke are also available. The tallit bag is made of cream wool blend and has a strip of painted silk running horizontally.
The tallit and all items are handmade.
