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.
To tie according to the Rambam or the Arizal, choose Rambam. This Ptil Tekhelet set comes with three white strings and one half white/half blue string for each corner.

  2. Ptil Tekhelet 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Apr 2018

    A hand full in our minyan where Ptil Tekhelet on our tallith. We're pushing the issue.

  3. Necessary 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Mar 2018

    Personally, I would have great difficulty with wearing a Tallit which did not have Ptil Tekhelet strings. It is a fundamental part of the mitsvah, in my opinion. One packet recently purchased did have a frayed white string but from experience, this is unusual.

  4. excellent service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Dec 2017

    I tasked Ben to procure long thick Techeles to be tied according to Tosfos, with Rav Hershel Schachter’s 7 x 7 Rokiah preference and the opinion of the Baal Hoittur which Rav Schachter also suggests. The tying was perfect and the service was quick, even to Australia.

  5. very happy! reasonable price! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Aug 2017

    Very happy with my tekhelet. Great service and product. 7 days delivery time to the uk is good but could be better. Will likely buy my next set from here again.

  6. satisfied well 5 Star Review

    Expertly crafted with beautiful rich blue-violet color. The shipping thing-according to me-was great too.

  7. Beautiful 5 Star Review

    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.

  8. 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.
