Question
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.
Answer
If there are four corners on this family tartan then you are obliged to place Tzitzit on its corners. Rabbi Ro'i Margalit
