Metallic pink and yellow tallit atarah brought with a Polish Jewish emigre

Object | Accession Number: 2009.117.25

Tallit (prayer shawl) needlework atarah (neckband) decoration made from silver and pink metallic thread owned by Ella Brecher Lieberman when she emigrated with her husband and 9 year old daughter, Hanna, from Stanislawow, Poland (Sasiv, Ukraine), to Palestine in 1939. It was made in Sasow, Poland, which was well known for its embroidered ritual objects. The atarah would be attached to the interior top center of the tallit worn by Jewish males during morning prayers, where it would be nearest the head when the shawl is draped over it.
