The wearing of tzit-tzit is a commandment given in Numbers 15:37-41 and is repeated in Deut 22:12. We also read about it in the Apostolic writings.

In this study, we will explore this commandment a bit to see how we are to understand and apply this in our lives. It may seem like one of the least of YHVH’s commandments, but it is very important.
