The tallit is a prayer shawl, the most authentic Jewish garment. It is a piece of linen or wool with special fringes on each of the four corners. Why wear a Tallit? The Lord said to Moses: Speak to the Israelites and instruct themto make for themselves fringes on the corners of their garments throughout the ages;let them attach a cord of blue to the fringe at each corner. That shall be your fringe; look at it and recall all the commandments of the Lord and observe them, so that you do not follow your heart and eyes in your lustful urge. I, the Lord, am your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt to be your God[Numbers 15:37-41].The correct plural of tallit in Modern Hebrew is tallitot, pronounced tah-lee-TOT, or [ta.li.tót] in IPA; the traditional Sephardi plural of tallét is talletot, pronounced tah-leh-TOT, or [ta.le.tót] in IPA.The Yiddish plural, which has its roots in the Mediaeval Ashkenazi masculine form tallet (compare Modern Ashkenazi/Israeli Hebrew tallit gadol with the masculine form of the adjective) with the analogous plural ending -im and diphthongisation of the accented e, is taleisim, pronounced, tah-LEY-sim, or [ta.léj.s?m] or [ta.léj.sim] in IPA. Again, all these plurals are interchangeable and are more or less commonly heard.
