Thread Broken and Retied

p. 35 Chapter Twelve   What Makes Zizit Unsuitable for Use

2. Concerning the problem of a thread of zizit that broke off and was retied, the Turei Zahav ruled that if at the time it was affixed to the tallit it was shorter than the permitted length it will not help to reattach the broken part as this would be Ta'aseh, veloh min heassuy; however, if it was in order after the zizit had been tied and only afterwards broke off to become unfit for use, it would again be in order if reattached.  If a thread was broken before the zizit were formed and was retied before forming the zizit that would also be in order, q.v. The Magen Avraham expressed the same opinion in Chap. 15 sub. para. 1, q.v. (Be'er Hetev ibid.)

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.
