Do you live in the New York metropolitan area? Have you ever thought about wearing tzitzit? Try it out here — somebody’s giving away a bunch of “gently worn” prayer shawls on Craigslist. It’s a great opportunity to jump risk-free into that wacky world of religious fashion…and, more to the point, you get to meet whatever kind of wacky and randomly generous person would post up their old tzitzit on a website.
Pronounced: TZEET-tzeet, or TZIT-siss, Origin: Hebrew, fringes tied to the corners of a prayer shawl.
