Tzitzit Check


One should make sure, daily, to examine the strings of his tzitzit and tallit before reciting berachot (blessings) and donning these garments, to make sure the strings are whole and the knots have not come undone.

One should even do this on Shabbat, according to many authorities, even though he might be tempted to fix the strings, which is prohibited on Shabbat. The concern for an improper berachah is greater than the concern that he might re-tie the strings.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 8:9; Mishneh Berurah 8:20)

Have a great day,
