Date
1985-08-15
Description
Four color slides. Images of Semigran's hand woven Jewish prayer shawls. Jewish tradition is to wear fringes on the corners of four-cornered garments. Since this is no longer a commonly worn type of garment, it is customary to wear a Tallit, a prayer shawl, during morning services. A Tallit can be made from any material and can be any color. The Dade Folk Arts Survey was conducted in 1986 by folklorists Tina Bucuvalas, Nancy Nusz and Laurie Sommers in order to identify folk arts and folk artists for the special folklife area at the 34th Annual Florida Folk Festival. The traditions are mainly Haitian, Jamaican, Mexican, Bahamian, Cuban and Jewish and cover a wide range of skills and art forms.
