The tallit forever falls off your shoulders because of gravity and has to be raised again and again. Why is it not sewn together so it always stays perfectly on your shoulders? (Sure, if you do, wrapping it over your head becomes less majestic, but it can still be done.) At least, why aren't snaps provided so you can fix its position in different ways for different prayers?

  • "Sewn together" - sewn onto your shoulders/sleeves?

  • However you want it to stay on your shoulders, sew it up together that way. (Not on your clothes!) Oct 8, 2017 at 17:06
  • I'm having trouble imagining what you mean by "sew it up together". Together with what exactly?

  • Sew it up itself instead of it being a big rectangle. I don't know how else to say it. Oct 8, 2017 at 17:10

    If it's not a big rectangle, would it even need Tzitzit? What would be the point of wearing it
