Ptil Tekhelet Tzitzit Tying Bureau

shittot-parchmentIn an effort to assist people around the world in locating someone to tie their tzitzit, the Ptil Tekhelet Organization provides this international listing of tzitzit tiers.  Ptil Tekhelet cannot guarantee the quality of the work produced by tiers not part of the Amuta, however we do strive to list only those people we have interviewed, tested for fundamental knowledge of hilchot tzitzit and seen a sample of their work.

Each person is to be contacted directly and charges the going rate in their area.  Email addresses are listed using the word “at” in place the @ symbol in an effort to reduce spammer abuse (addresses of people in the amuta are listed normally since our addresses have unfortunately already been abused).

If you are interested in being on this list, please send your information, along with pictures of your work, and religious institution affiliation (e.g., synagogue membership) to: [email protected].

Anyone interested in learning how to tie any of the various methods is encouraged to use our various hands-on guides available in our Tekhelet Tying Tools.  Also see this link for a definition of “ALL” methods referred to in the table below.
