Anna’s Flowering Tree of Life Tallit

Anna’s Flowering Tree of Life Tallit is exquisite. She chose a natural/cream/beige woven silk fabric with lots of character for the body of her gorgeous tallit.

Anna designed a “tree of life” with lots of flowers, a bird and a Star of David to wrap around the tallit, with delicate flowers falling off onto one side. The flowers were appliqued with three different shades of pink dupioni silk, and the bird and star were embroidered. Because Anna is a gymnast, 2 of her embroidered corners depict a girl doing a handstand on a balance beam, and the other 2 had her initials in a beautiful font with gold thread. 

Her atarah, also embroidered in gold, said in Hebrew and English, “It always seems imposible until it’s done.” Nelson Mandela
