The Bar/ Bat Mitzvah Experience – The Tzitzit Connection.
Duration: 45 minutes
We invite the celebrating family to come to our studio, overlooking the Galilean hills, where you will perform the mitzvah of tying the tzitzit (tassels) to the tallit.
We will explain the spiritual importance of the tzitzit and the Jewish law behind it, while each family member will be asked to tie a knot on the tallit – and along with the knot, to give a blessing or share something meaningful for the bar/bat mitzvah child. At the end of the ceremony, the tallit will be presented to the guest of honor. This experience is full of fascinating insights to the hows and whys of the tying of tzitzit.

"Hello. I wanted to reach out on behalf of the Goldstein family and thank you. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in your gallery and making the scented sashes. It was absolutely one of the highlights of our trip. We submitted a posting to Trip Advisors and hope they will post it. It is a very popular review travel sight. We wish you continued success and blessings."
"Please thank everyone involved in the weaving of my incredible talit. I wear it for the first time tonight in a lifetime with such love and gratitude for your work and all the color and beauty you bring into the world. Since fall of 1998 I've dreamt of the moment when I could afford this talit. Thank you for still being there to make it possible. I wish you all blessings and good fortune. Shabbat shalom"
"All I can say is Magnificent the Talit exceeded anything I could have imagined thank you for everything and I will probably be calling on you again in the future we have a 10 year old son "Ian" we will hopefully be getting a Talit from you for him again Thankyou very much for the "Work of art" shalom Alex :)))"
"Omer! It is so beautiful!!! I am thrilled with my tallit, kipot, and carry bag. The colors, weaving, and intentionality are so wonderful. I cannot wait to wrap myself in it for the first time at services this Saturday for Shabbat Shirah.
Please extend my thanks to everyone at Canaan Gallery: yourself, Orna, the whole family. Know that meeting all of you and my experiences in your shop (as well as the final product, of course) were one of the highlights of my first trip to Israel last October. I find it comforting to have my dear ones names on the tzitzit corners, too. What a lovely idea."
Hi Rivka and Omer,
The talit arrived! My son said "it is amazing beyond my wildest dreams." A beautiful work of art. Thanks so much for your attention and helping to make our simcha so special!
Just want you to know that the Tallit arrived today. It is beautiful. Thank you for rushing the finishing of it and the shipping. We leave for our grandchildren's Bnai mitzvah in 48 hours. I will be so thrilled to be wearing it.
Please extend my thanks to Joshua and all of the artisans at Canaan Gallery for the beautiful tallis (Reference # 200838) that we received. I will wear it with joy, and it will be a tangible memory of our trip to Israel. I wish for blessings to be upon all of you, and upon all of Israel!
