Colorful Tallis


Someone gifted me a colorful tallis. I have seen many of my non-orthodox relatives and friends use tallisim with all kinds of elaborate designs, but among the orthodox, I have only seen them with black or blue stripes. Is a colorful tallis kosher?



  1. There is nothing wrong with having a “multi-colored” Tallis. It is true that in the Ashkenazic world most Tallesim have black stripes, and among the Sephardim there is a prevalent custom to have white stripes, but nevertheless there is no prohibition against having other colors.
