Ilu Finu tallis katan

Bold ocean breakers crash beneath streams of radiating sunlight. This crisp black-and-white tallis is a meditation on the Ilu Finu section of Nishmat, a liturgical poem recited on Shabbat and festivals.

Ilu finu presents us with a series of ‘what if’ questions: If our mouths could fill with as much song as water fills the sea… If joy moved our tongues like innumerable waves… If our eyes radiated light as bright as the sun and moon…

Could we ever fully express our gratitude for the breadth of Creation?
