tallit routinely?

Recommended Posts

A truly incredible companion of mine provided for me his own tallit. I was pondering whether this has meaning in Jewish custom. Would somebody give another person their tallit routinely? Should I consider this an exceptionally uncommon thing to happen?

From my understanding as someone who studies and provides for all religions, tallits are often passed down from generation to generation, usually from father to son or sometimes from a father-in-law to a son-in-law. It's usually not worn by women besides Reformed Jews, and from my understanding it's typically not given as a gift to someone who's not within the family or not a Jew.

 

Seeing as how a friend gave it to you I'd consider it a great gift and gesture of friendship, though you could always ask him.
