About This Text
Tractate Tzitzit is one of seven small tractates that addresses topics for which there is no specific tractate in the Mishnah or Talmud. These tractates are written in the terse style of the Mishnah and are likely from the time period of the Mishnah or early Talmud, but their dating and places of composition are subject to debate. Tractate Tzitzit discusses the commandment Numbers 15:38–40 and Deuteronomy 22:12 to tie fringes (Tzitzit) on four-cornered garments as a reminder to keep the laws.
Composed: Talmudic Israel/Babylon, c.100 BCE - c.900 CE
