Marissa Making her own Tallit (Jewish Prayer Shawl)
Marissa will be turning 12 soon and its time to start thinking about her Bat Mitzvah. At a Bar (boy) or Bat (girl) Mitzvah, a child is called up to read from the Torah (Bible scroll) and it is when they become considered an adult and responsible for their actions in the eye's of G-D. When a child is being Bat Mitzvah'd, they wear a prayer shawl called a Tallit for the first time and then continue to wear it throughout their lives any time they pray.
These pictures show Me and Marissa making her Tallit and the steps along the way.
