Tassels. In Numbers 15:38%u201439, God commands the Israelites to wear tassels on their garments as a reminder to them to obey all the commandments. In practice, each tassels came to have five knots (representing Torah), four spaces between the knots (representing the name YHWH%u2014YaHWeH). The numerical value of the word “tzitzit” (600), plus the five knots added to the eight strands of thread in each knot added up to the number 613%u2014a number of commandments God gave in the Torah.
