A mitzvah rediscovered
A single thread connects us all; we are but one human tapestry.
Our deepest condolences to the families who have lost their loved ones in the horrific terrorist attack in southern Israel. We pray for the recovery of the injured and the safe return of the kidnapped. We pray for the safety of the IDF soldiers and security personnel. Stay strong and let us strengthen one another, for our people and for our land.
Ptil Tekhelet provides genuine Tekhelet strings so Jews can once again fulfill the mitzvah of wearing Tekhelet on their Tzitzit.
About 1300 years ago, the secrets of Tekhelet, this wondrous blue color and the identity of the mysterious sea creature – the Chillazon – that produced the dye was lost. Over the past half-century, a convergence of research and discoveries by Rabbis, scientists, archaeologists, and others has led to the conclusive identification of the sea-snail, Murex trunculus, as the authentic source of Tekhelet.
