Intent of Mitzvah when Weaving Tzitzit

p. 32 Chapter Eleven   The Strands of the Zizit and how they are Woven

1. The strands of the zizit must be woven for the purpose of the mitzva (i.e. that they should be suitable for accomplishing the mitzva), which means that the weaver should say before he begins the weaving process that he is doing it for the purpose of zizit; or one should say to a woman, 'weave me zizit for this tallit.'  If zizit were not woven for the purpose of the mitzva they are unsuitable for use. (Shulchan Aruch 11)

Note from us: Please consult your own rabbi to find out what to do - these are for learning purposes only.
As quoted from:
Shulchan HaMelech, a Kitzur Shulchan Aruch in 3 volumes as compiled by Maharan HaRav Shmuel Laniado z'al, 1923 with the supplement "Al HaShulchan" containing various opinions compiled by Ezra Basri, Chief Justice of the District Court, Jerusalem in 1992.

We would like to dedicate this learning for the speedy and complete recovery of two people: our friends' 5-year-old son, Joseph Benjamin, son of Ireneusz Khrystof, diagnosed in April with ALL leukemia, and a longtime friend of the family, Frank, son of Joseph, having thyroid surgery soon. Please have them in mind when studying. If you would like updates on their progress, please let me know so I can tell you when I find out from either or both.
