  1. Title: More than just torn!
    Author: Chaim Simons ,

    Tzitzis can often get torn if one does not use sufficient care when laundering them. There are various patents in how to launder them without damage. However, sending them to a non-Jewish laundry can indeed create problems. One person reports that the laundry charged him a large sum and when queried they answered that “it was hard work undoing all those knots”. At least the tzitzis were not ruined – they could be reknotted. However in another story I heard, (I cannot vouch for its accuracy), the tzitzis beged was returned minus the tzitzis together with a note that the laundry had cut off the threads hanging from the corners – in this case the tzitzis threads were more than just torn!!

Learning on the Marcos and Adina Katz YUTorah site is sponsored today by Ruth Peyser Kestenbaum and Miriam & Alan Goldberg to mark the tenth yahrtzeit of their father, Irwin Peyser, Harav Yisroel Chaim ben R' Dovid V' Fraidah Raizel Peyser and by Dr. Gerald and Eleanor Frenkel and Joany and Henry Silberman in memory of Batsheva bas Shmuel Roer and by Marilyn and Eliot Lauer in loving memory of Marilyn's mother, Judy Steinberg, Yehudis Liba bas Simcha Hakohen.
