Fringed With Faith
The tzitzit (fringes) and tallit (prayer shawl) serve as physical reminders of our connections with previous generations and of the faith that sustained them and us.
It was that physical reminder, that we're connected to the generations that came before us and the faith that sustained them, that sat upon Raida's shoulders as she recited the blessings over the Torah. May we all be blessed with the opportunities to see and feel the physical reminders of the faith of our people.
