Commentary on Parashat Sh'lach, Numbers 13:1 - 15:41

They should make fringes on the wings of their garments for all generations, and the fringe of the corner should have a thread of tekhelet. (Numbers 15:38)

וְעָשׂוּ לָהֶם צִיצִת עַל-כַּנְפֵי בִגְדֵיהֶם, לְדרתָם; וְנָתְנוּ עַל-צִיצִת הַכָּנָף, פְּתִיל תְּכֵלֶת
