I am 70 years old and a recent convert. My Bar Mitzvah is in September and I wanted a new tallit to celebrate the occasion. Something unique, but not showy. Something elegant, yet understated. The Tashbetz tallit fits the bill perfectly and is nicer than anything I've seen so far. The package got hung up in New York due to the pandemic, but this tallit was well worth the wait. Excellent customer service, too!
The craftsmanship is excellent, the tzitzis are perfect. Service was great....todah Ben
The tallit is beautiful! I feel happy with it and have used it constantly, more than my previous one. The feel is excellent. It's better than I expected. The atarah is beautiful as well. Even the embroidery on the tallit and tefillin bags are superb. Great service as always.
I am deeply grateful for the beautiful tallit! Very fine quality and light heft. The tzittzit are perfect and detail of weave and fringe are truly nice. The ordering process and shipping went very smoothly for the Tallit. I also ordered a bag which the postal services involved must have sent around the globe a few times. Ben was careful to track it until it disappeared from radar for many months. When it was returned to him he immediately sent it out in a rush delivery and it arrived in less than a week. Very pleased and blessed. Toda Rabah!
My daughter will be married shortly and some weeks ago took me shopping for a new tallit for her fiance that will be used during the ceremony. We found a beautiful Tashbetz non-slip tallit with white and silver stripes at a local Judaica shop on Long Island, but were told the right size would have to be ordered. After waiting for a month, we searched the internet for this specific tallit and found it on Ben's website. Non willing to leave anything to chance, I e-mailed Ben and followed up by phone to make sure it was the exact same one we had seen in the store and that it was immediately available.
Ben was a pleasure to deal with. He expedited the order, updated me on the shipping date, and it arrived today, well within the designated time frame, perfectly packaged in a protective slip. It's a magnificint tallit that I'm sure my soon-to-be-son-in-law will appreciate.
After many emails with Ben and him having patience with me, I decided on the Tashbetz non-slip. He also helped me decide on the tying method for the tzitzit and ptil techelet (which was the Rambam). This is the first time I have worn this style of tallit, being for the last 30+ years, I wore my Bar Mitzvah tallit (shawl style). I am very happy with the way the weave looks and feels.
I used the tallit and tzitzi wizard to pick the size that was right for me (I am 5 ft. 5in. tall) and learned a lot about the tzitzit with the Tzitzit Wizard.
While at synagague, the light made the satin stripes came out as a light blue iredecent which sets off the silver stripe. I had several people comment about how beautiful it looked. As for the non-slip, I have very little trouble with it falling off my shoulders. I did not have to keep pulling it up, if at all, as much as I saw others every few minutes readjusting their tallit because it kept falling off their shoulders.
I also ordered the large wool tallit bag and had my hebrew name embroidered. I did not expect it to come out as nice as it did. I was expecting thin letters but these were bold hebrew letter. Thank you Ben.
