Ptil Tekhelet Tzitzit Strings


Product Description

Why does the Torah enjoin us regarding techelet? Because techelet resembles sapphire, and the Tablets were made of sapphire, to tell you that as long as Bnei Yisrael gaze upon this techelet they are reminded of what is inscribed on the Tablets and observe the commandments, therefore it is written, ‘And you shall see it [the techelet string] and remember all of the commandments of G-d and you shall do them.’       - Mishnat Rabbi Eliezer, Chap. 14

Ben's Tallit Shop is an authorized dealer of Ptil Tekhelet tzitzit strings and we can tie Ptil Tekhelet strings on any tallit we sell. See our Techelet Tallit selection or contact us for details.
Which set you choose (Raavad or Rambam) depends on how you plan to tie the tzitzit. To tie according to the Vilna Gaon, Sefer HaChinuch, Amram Gaon or the Raavad, choose Raavad. This set comes with three white strings and one blue string for each corner.

    The tzitziot are perfect. They are easy to work with and are expertly crafted. The service from Ben's Tallit Shop is superb. Thank you for a wonderful shopping experience.

  2. learned a lot 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Nov 2016

    After 45 years, I was given a new Talit. I decided to get Ptil Tchelet. The tzitzit are as expected. I bought the thick, Rambam. It is not about how they look (although I like the way they look). But rather, I learned a lot during the process, picking which type of tzitzit (Rambam, Raavad, Tosafot) and how to tie them and why. It made the experience well worthwhile, one I will appreciate everytime I put on my Talit.

  3. deep vibrant blue 5 Star Review

    These are really nice Ptil Techelet, the color is very nice and even, they didn't come off on my hands while tying them either. Plenty of length on both sides (dyed side and non-dyed side) after tying. I have and will continue to buy from this site. Very good shipping and communication too.

  4. Beautiful Ptil Tekhelet 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Apr 2015

    Did an excellent job of tying the tzitzit. Quite knowledgeable of the various customs, and offered good advice. Made it look superb [and according to the Lubavitch custom]. I personally recommend [stepping it up a notch and] purchasing the 1/2 string of Ptil Tekhelet, which is beautiful. Certainly a trustworthy source of tallit katan and tsitsit!

  5. Excellent Service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Sep 2014

    Thank you so much for the rapid response to all of my questions and the excellent service I received. The fact that you responded to all of my concerns so quickly and guided me through this purchase was wonderful.. I have given the P'til Techelet as a wedding gift for my Rabbi to put on the new Tallit his bride has given him.
