Wearing a Tallit Outside on Shabbat

p. 36 Chapter Thirteen The Laws Concerning Zizit on Shabbat

2. If all its zizit are halachically in order a tallit may be worn to go out to a reshut harabbim on Shabbat; this applies both to a tallit katan and a tallit gadol, and even in our times when we do not possess techelet (the bluish dye obtained from the Chilazon fish). (Sh. Ar.ibid.) (This is permitted even at night time, although there is no obligation to wear zizit at that time, as they are considered decorative to the garment. B.Het. quoting the Beit Yossef ibid.) This ruling does not apply when the tallit is placed just on the shoulders. (Rema, ibid.) There is no need to check the tallit before going out (to a reshut harabbim) as we rely on its previously established halachic status, i.e. that it was correctly fitted with zizit. (Sh. Ar. 13)

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, Franco, son of Joseph, who is B"H recovering from thyroid surgery. 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.

Update on cholim - Got the following from Franco today! Good news. No cancer. After removing the left half of my thyroid which had the small tumors and the larger one next to it, they checked the tumors for thyroid cancer as well as lymphoma. There was no trace of either. This operation is behind me not to mention the anxiety. Thank you for all your support and prayers, Love, Franco

 B"H we did our second Happiness Conference Call last night (Tuesday) on skype, reading the Rabbi Pliskin Happiness book as a merit for these and other cholim - we thank those who participated and hope you will all join us for the next installment tomorrow night (Thursday) at 9pm (contact me to find out how to join -
