- Wedding: November 2008
Hi, I do need help to this basic question even tho it involves a Jewish custom–It is customary for a bride to buy a Tallis (kind of shawl) for her fiancee during the engagement time. My Fiance has a childhood friend who owns a business of making these very special ones–he lives in Israel so I was going to ask for his website-I’ve only met him once. However, recently he responded to our Engagement announcement and… he and my Fiance got into a dialogue about "Do you need a tallis? So my Fiance wrote back saying "Yes".
So, while I assumed it was something I would give him, both to follow tradition and because it might be a special gift to our own son in the future…looks like it is out of my hands. I dont want to appear ungrateful-I realise I can always buy him another for our first anniversary or something–should I just acknowledge that I believe they have it covered and be thankful? Or should I insist on giving it myself? Help, Please-Thanks
