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?

  • However you want it to stay on your shoulders, sew it up together that way. (Not on your clothes!) – Maurice Mizrahi Oct 8 '17 at 17:06
  • I'm having trouble imagining what you mean by "sew it up together". Together with what exactly? – Oliver Oct 8 '17 at 17:07
  • Sew it up itself instead of it being a big rectangle. I don't know how else to say it. – Maurice Mizrahi Oct 8 '17 at 17:10

    If it's not a big rectangle, would it even need Tzitzit? What would be the point of wearing it – Double AA Oct 8 '17 at 17:11
