Question:

B S D

Shalom Dinonline,,
What are the minimum requirements for the main material in the begged of a tallis gadol (not asking about the corners, but rather the rest of the begged)? Could the begged be made of “fishnet”, for instance?
Thank you for your help.

Answer:

My assumption is that you are asking regarding the size of the holes in the garment. According to some poskim,) Lehoros Nossan 2-2, Piskei Teshuvos 8 ftnt. 11) if the holes are large enough that the person’s skin can be seen thru it, then the holes are too large. Oz Nidberu 7-53 argues on this, nevertheless the holes in the picture that you sent would be considered too large.

Best wishes
