What is Tzitzis, and when and where do you wear it?

Tzitzis reminds us that we have 613 mitzvot to do. Every Jewish boy and man is supposed to wear Tzitzis every day. If this is not possible, try and wear it every time you go to synagogue. Tzitzis is an undergarment, so you must wear it under your clothing. As you put the Tzitzis on, you must make the following Brachah: Blessed are You, O Lord our God, King of the Universe, Who has commanded us about the mitzvah of Tzizit.

How do you tie a Tzizit?

You need a piece of cloth with a small hole near one of the corners, and four pieces of string, one of them twice as long as the others. Hold the ends of the four strings together and pass them through the hole. Pull them through until they meet the ends of the three short pieces, and tie them all in a double knot.

Take the long string and wind it around the others SEVEN times. Make another double knot. Wind the long thread around the others EIGHT times, and make another double knot. Wind the long string around the others ELEVEN times, and make another double knot. Wind the long thread around the others THIRTEEN more times. A final double knot completes your Tzizit.
