As is obvious by my nameI have Scottish ancestry in my line (my father). I want to use a tallit and have seen many couloured Tallit for sale on the internet. Would it be acceptable to use the family tartan as a Tallit, or weave it in where the strips usaually are are? I would like my Talllit to reflect my heritage.
If there are four corners on this family tartan then you are obliged to place Tzitzit on its corners. Rabbi Ro'i Margalit
