NO JEWISH TAR­TAN

The Jewish Chronicle - - Comment&analysis -

Since the word “tar­tan”, stem­ming from “tire­taine” (lin­sey-woolsey), refers to a mix­ture of wool and linen — sha’at­nez — and is there­fore, ac­cord­ing to the To­rah, for­bid­den to be worn, how on earth can one pro­duce a Jewish tar­tan ( JC, May 23)? Let us keep to our tra­di­tional tal­lit and tz­itzit — at least they do carry an au­then­tic cer­tifi­cate. Leonard E Book, a Low­lan­der eli­malkab@ya­hoo.co.uk
