Registration notes: The Rabbinical tartan was conceived by Rabbi Dr Raphael Pazo, and designed by Mr Gary James Michael Berreth. The design is owned by Rabbi Dr Raphael Pazo. The concept of a tartan designed exclusively for clergy is not new in the history of tartan design, although no tartan for Jewish Rabbis was recorded on the Scottish Register of Tartans. From the middle of October to early November 2009, Mr Berreth laboured to design this very special tartan, using as parameters for this remarkable design Ancient Jewish Kabalistic numerology called "Gematria" and the scientific mathematical Fibonacci numerical formulas. In addition, the design incorporates mystical symbolism based on the religious subjects. Each one of the colours of this intricate tartan and the number of threads in each colour, have religious meanings to Jewish Rabbis, based on the garments worn by the High Priest (Kohen Gadol in Hebrew) that presided over many of the ordinances in the Temple in Jerusalem (Yerushalayim), Israel. The use of this tartan is controlled by Rabbi Dr Raphael Pazo and restricted to rabbis ordained in accordance with the Biblical Laws of Sha'aneetz, which enumerate the various restrictions in the manufacture of a garment. This means that the tartan must be woven from 100% virgin wool, certified vegetable dyes, and notarized attestation that none of the labour was performed on Sabbath. The royal blue of the tartan represents the Priesthood (Rabbinate) that officiated in the Ancient Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem; the red symbolises the blood sacrifices offered in the Temple Court Yard.
Information notes: To view woven sample, please request NAS6/O6/Oversize.
Woven Sample: A woven sample of this tartan has been received by the Scottish Register of Tartans for permanent preservation in the National Records of Scotland.
