The mitzvah of tziztit does not apply at night, so when we wear a talis all of davening on Yom Kippur, starting this year on Friday night for Maariv, do we make a bracha when we put the talis on?

Is it better to put it on closer to mincha time to avoid any such issues?

Mishna B'rura 619:4 says to put on the talis during the day so as to be able to say the b'racha on it; one does not, he says, say the b'racha on it if putting it on at night. That's the way I read it; CYLOR for practical matters.

  • And asking reminded me to go find my kittel, glad I looked, since my wife had moved it somewhere only she knows about. :)
