I would like to know if the tzizis fringes are suppose to show; I am rather uncomfortable having it out.
If you can kindly show the sources I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you very much!
The tzitzis are supposed to show, as the Shulchan Aruch states O:CH 8-11, “The main mitzvah of wearing the tallis katan is to wear them on top of our clothing in order to be able to see them all the time”. The Mishna Berura (ibid 26) explains that this is based on the posuk “u’reisem oso”, and you should see the tzitzis. There are opinions that the tallis katan should be worn under one’s shirt, but the actual tzitzis should be showing (see M:A 8-13).
We should not be embarrassed of our tzitzus, it is our mitzvah, our privilege, and we should be proud of them. They are a sign, and a badge of honor. Imagine a soldier that got a badge of honor from the president, he would wear it on his clothing all the time, especially when we wears his uniform. If he is embarrassed of the badge of the king, what does that say?
The tzitzis are a symbol, “I am connected to Hashem”. The tzitzis are worn in a way, that the four corners of the tzitzis surround the person. When we look in front of ourselves we see the two front corners, (see S:A 24-50). The two corners have ten knots, (five on each), and a total of 16 strings, which together equal 26. This represents the name of Hashem, Yud- Hey- Vav- Hey, which numerically equals 26. Meaning, when we wear our tzitzis, we are taking Hashem along with us. It is really more than that. As an interesting point, we wear the tzitzis in a way that the four corners are like a box around us. Any direction that we look, we will see two corners of the tzitzis. Therefore it is like we are walking in the street surrounded by the name of Hashem. This is perhaps one of the reasons why our tzitzis is a protection for us- Hashem is our body guard. (See the sefer Tztzis Utcheles, R’ Tzvi Cohen chapter 16, where he elaborates on many ways that tzitzis provide us with a protection.)
If you are still embarrassed from the tzitzis you can stick them into your pants pocket after they come out of your shirt, so that they can still be seen, even though they are not hanging out a lot.
