Tallit Size Wizard - Step 2 of 2
Choose a Size 18, Size 24 or Size 36, which are 18 inches wide, 24 inches wide and 36 inches wide respectively.
Note that the difference between a Size 24 and a Size 36 is fairly significant (50% wider). A Size 24 is designed to rest on the neck and hang in front, whereas a Size 36 covers the upper back and then wraps around the upper arms before hanging in front.
Handmade tallit makers, such as Gabrieli, Weaving Creation and Kedma, make tallits whose width is typically somewhere in between.
The length will be between 72 inches and 80 inches and is standard, varying from one tallit maker to another.
If you need a tallit for someone under 5 feet tall, the tallit should be under 70 inches long. Contact us for special size options.
