I was so happy with my Shabbat tichel that I wore it on Friday night AND Saturday during the day! I don’t know why I’ve never tried putting the white shimmery and white shinylicious together before… they were made for each other! And of course I couldn’t help adding some lace to top it off!
I only realized later that the dark red and white colours (that’s right, it’s coloUrs :P) made me look very Canadian. I’m not one to tout my nationality, but it definitely made me smile!
For those that are wondering… I do attempt to wear white on Shabbat when I can. My husband wears all white (yes, even the shoes!) so it’s sometimes a challenge to keep up, but I at least don’t wear black on Shabbat. The white reminds us that on this day we are elevated, ethereal, and closer to the infinite than during the week. I must admit, that wearing white tichels and clothing truly reminds me of this, and I hope to do it more often!
How do you feel about wearing white?
