How to put on a Tallit
Step 1: Open the tallit and hold it in both hands so you can see the blessing on the collar.
Step 2: Say the following blessing before putting on the garment.
In Hebrew: Barukh atah Adonai, Eloheinu, melekh ha'olam asher kidishanu b'mitz'votav v'tzivanu l'hit'ateif ba-tzitzit
In English: Blessed art Thou, O Lord our God, King of the universe, who hast hallowed us by Thy commandments, and hast commanded us to enwrap ourselves in the fringed garment.
Step 3: Kiss the end of the collar where the last word of the blessing is embroidered and then kiss the first word that is embroidered on the collar.
Step 4: Wrap the tallit around your shoulders and adjust the garment so is sits on your shoulders comfortably. Some people also hold it over their head first to create a private space for prayer.
Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. (Revelation 22:14)
