Anthology A collection of Torah resources
"Speak to the Children of Israel and say to them that they shall make themselves tzitzis (tassles) on the corners of their garments, throughout their generations and they shall place upon the tzitzis of each corner a thread of blue wool. These shall be your tzitzis, and when you see them, you shall remember all of God's commandments so as to keep them. You will then not stray after your heart and eyes after which have led you to immorality. You will thus remember and keep all My commandments, and be holy to your God."
"…you shall make tassels on the four corners of your garments, with which you cover yourself."
"In those days [Messianic times], ten men of each language will grasp the corner of [a garment containing Tzitzith, worn by] a Jewish man, and they will say, 'Let us go with you for we have heard that G-d is with you'"
[Menochos 43b] states: "Whoever wears Tefillin on his head and arm, Tzitzis on his clothes, and has a Mezuzoh on his door can be assured he will not sin, since he has many reminders. They are the angels who prevent him from sinning, as [Psalms 34:8] declares: 'The angel of G-d camps around those who fear Him and rescues them.'"
