A single wearing a Tallit


Can an older Ashkanazi single male wear a tallit to shul, and can he cover his head with the tallit during Shomana Esrei and other times when married men cover their heads?


It is permitted. Although there are different minhagim, there is no inherent issur for an Ashkenazim to wear a tallis, and there are many Ashkanazim that do wear tallisim during davening.

  1. I give a blessing that the one who asked this question find his bashert so he can then wear the tallis gadol and be following the common Ashkenazi minhag. :)
