I am a rose of Sharon
A lily of the valleys.
Song of Solomon 2.1
The message of the Rose of Sharon Tallit:
The rose, gold, and black recall the colors of the Rose of Sharon found in Israel.
The rose color is for Hesed, G-d’s Steadfast Love.
The Gold color is for Chaim, the Gift of Life.
The Black Color is for the unsearchable Providence of G-d:
On one side, the narrower stripe is Sorrow
On the other side, the wider stripe is Hope.
Life, Love, Sorrow, Hope. This is the lot of the Jewish People. This is the meaning into which we are initiated. May it be a blessing to you.
