Women wear the Tallit?

Postby jinetakosa » Thu Oct 02, 2014 8:14 pm

Can women wear the tallit or is this just for the men? What about wearing a kippah? I have heard that in Halacha, women’s hair must be covered. Must men wear a kippah when wearing the tallit? Is it proper to wear a hat rather than a kippah, or even a tallit?

God does not command a specific style, color, or size of head covering, it is important that the church does not add to God’s Word and require a specific style, color, or size. Some churches have specified a style, color, and size thinking that it would prevent the people of the church from discarding the head covering. It was in continuous progress and it is followed by everyone.
