This H&M Scarf Looks Just Like a Jewish Prayer Shawl

H&M hm-Tallit 640x480

Racked is reporting that the H&M retailer is currently offering a beige scarf with black stripes that looks like the Jewish prayer tallit. On the company  website you can get it for $17.99.

“H&M even incorporated its own version of tzitzit, the knotted fringe you’ll find on every tallit, ” the story notes.

The Stockholm-based chain also has a matching fringed poncho for $34.99.

 

This isn’t’s first foray into prayer-shawl chic:

In 2011, H&M issued a similarly-styled women’s poncho. (Three years later, the brand was accused of anti-Semitism when it issued a tank top with a skull superimposed atop a Star of David.)

H&M is hardly the only major fashion retailer to wade into Jewish (or anti-Semitic) territory.

In the summer of 2014, the Spain-based chain Zara sold a children’s striped “sheriff” T-shirt that looked alarmingly like a concentration-camp uniform, complete with a six-pointed yellow star on the left breast.
