\o/ Can I get a witness? \o/

So, I’m learning a new job that will have me doing some classroom instruction.  Typically, I can be anywhere in western SC with a class that will last four days or so.  Yesterday, as I shadow my trainer, I began with a class of 12, just north of Greenwood.

This morning, while setting up, I asked if there were any questions and a hand immediately went up.  The late 20’s lady hesitantly said, “Uhm, what, uhm, are those string things you have on your side?”

I smiled, inside and out, and took three minutes to quickly explain my background, what my tzitziot are, what they mean and where I get that from Scripture (Numbers 15:37-41).  At least seven of the students were very interested with one even asking to look more closely and ask follow on questions.

There is a debate that has gone on for a long, long time as to whether this command is a private or corporate command.  I.e., do I tuck them in and let them remind only me, or, as a peculiar people, do I wear them out as a reminder to others to keep the commandments and as a witness to who I am as a keeper of the Commandments.  Personally, I have always worn them out and been convicted of such.  I do not intent to fuel the debate so much as say, “If they had been tucked in, would I have had opportunity to give a witness to the veracity of the Torah and walking as the Messiah?”

Shalom!!

    I too have been convinced to wear the Tzitziot
    out and as often as I can. The fulfilling of the command of the Tzitzi starts when I put them on in the morning till I take them off to go to bed.
    First to speak to me as the Torah states, then to remind me as the day goes on. If someone sees them and asks what they are I once again get to remind myself as I share.
    I wear them to fulfill the commandment for me.
