To Purchase this Sefer [1]

One is to be scrupulous in the Mitzvah of Tzitzis and try to fulfill it on its highest level. [Thus, in those cases to be explained in which there are lenient opinions, nevertheless one is to try to be scrupulous in these matters.]


The conditions required for a garment to be obligated in Tzitzis are as follows:

  1. Material: The garment is made of a Tzitzis requiring material. [Halacha 1]
  2. Corners: The garment contains four square corners. [Halacha 11]
  3. Slit: The slit in the garment that forms the corners is of minimum required length. [Halacha 8]
  4. Size: The size of the garment is of Tzitzis requiring size. [Halacha 7]
  5. Use: The use of the garment is for a Tzitzis requiring use. [Halacha 9]
  6. The garment does not contain an invalidating tear. [Halacha 13]


The custom today:[2]

The custom today is not to tie Tzitzis on any garment that is obligated in Tzitzis, other than a Tallis Gadol or Tallis Katan, and rather when a garment is obligated in Tzitzis, as explained in this Chapter, one is to either round one of the corners, or sew majority of the sides.
