I go to a Chabad synagogue where everyone wears black belts called gartels. When I went on a Chasidic tour to Williamsbourg I bought a black Gartel. Now that Yom Kippur is on its way I have bought a white one that I will also use on Peisach. Although the nice man who ran the store put the Gartel on me I do not remember how to put it on. Is there a specific way to put it on you?

    Related; alternative related question. (You went on a tour, you say; hmm, around a month ago? :) Seriously though, AFAIK, there’s no “tradition” how to tie it. – Oliver Oct 7 at 0:01

  • I know how it's done however I would have a hard time explaining it in words. – ezra Oct 7 at 1:55

    I checked YouTube but didn't find anything that would help. Wouldn't the simplest thing be to go to shul a bit earlier and ask a friendly congregant to show you? Ideally not on Yom Kippur where many are engaged in prayer (e.g., Tefila Zaka) before Kol Nidrei. – mbloch Oct 7 at 3:26
