Training children to wear tzitzit


Once a boy is old enough to understand how to wear tzitzit, meaning to keep two corners of the garment in front and two behind, and to hold the strings when reciting Shema, we are obligated to acquire a pair of tzitzit for him, and train him.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 17:3)

Have a great day,

  1. This was very timely for me. This week I'm trying to find time to tie new tzitzit for my boys.
