Wearing a Tallit (prayer shawl) during prayers dates back thousands of years. Yair Emanuel has reimagined the traditional Tallit and has created beautiful prayer shawls that are beautifully decorated with embroidery and color, creating a Tallit that is both a beautiful and functional piece of Judaica.
This beautiful set holds a tallit (19.6 x 74.8 inches/50 x 190 cm), a zippered embroidered tallit bag, and a coordinating embroidered kippah which make a beautiful gift to give or to receive.
Emanuels embroidered Jerusalem tallit is stunning. Stitched in vibrant color with accent gold threads. The design shows the old city of Jerusalem with a beautiful blue sky.
Featured on the tallit is the phrase “Ki metzion tetza Torah Hashem m’yerushalayim’ (For out of Zion shall go forth the law and instruction, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. Isaiah 2:3)

The city influences many of his beautiful works of art, decorated with scenes from the Old City of Jerusalem. His other works celebrate the seven species of the land of Israel with charming depictions of wheat, barley, rye, pomegranates, grapes, olives, and figs.
Emanuel’s designs are infused with his love for Judaism, a respect for tradition blended with his joyful embrace of color and innovation. His Judaica is represented in various mediums from painted wood, textiles, and metal. Each piece that he makes is unique while recognizably ‘Emanuel.’
