TZITZIT / TASSLES

A word found both in the Torah and Messianic Writings (N.T.). We are commanded to wear ‘Tzitzit’ as a remembrance of the Torah.

Bemiḏbar/Numbers 15:37-41And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, 38 “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, and you shall say to them to make tzitziyot on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and to put a blue cord in the tzitzit of the corners. 39 “And it shall be to you for a tzitzit, and you shall see it, and shall remember all the commands of יהוה and shall do them, and not search after your own heart and your own eyes after which you went whoring, 40 so that you remember, and shall do all My commands, and be set-apart unto your Elohim. 41 “I am יהוה your Elohim, who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, to be your Elohim. I am יהוה your Elohim.

(Tzitziyot = plural of tzitzit)

Deḇarim/Deuteronomy 22:12Make tassels on the four corners of the garment with which you cover yourself.

יהושע Messiah also wore the tzitzit as found in the Messianic Writings (N.T.):

Mattithyahu/Matthew 9:20 “And see, a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years came from behind and touched the tzitzit of His garment.

Mattithyahu/Matthew 14:36 “and begged Him to let them only touch the tzitzit of His garment. And as many as touched it were completely healed.

Scripture gives us clear instruction to wear tassels with a blue thread/cord on our garments, yet does not specifically describe how it ought to look. The most common way of tying a tzitzit is the 10-5-6-5 numerical value of the Name יהוה according to the Hebrew Alphabet.

All Tzitzit come in pairs and are charged at ZAR 50 (R 50.00) per packet.
