I agree with you that Tzitziyot are for men.

I believe is not forbbid if a women use a tzitzit, but at least she has to wear it instead of the white tzitzityot she will have to use a pink one or something more feminine.

Tzitzityot white and Techelet are just for men.

The Torah commands Tzitzi be worn by the BNAI YISRAEL this is literally "Sons of Yisrael". However a mixed group in Hebrew is always addressed as masculine, so we could understand "Children of Israel" as a mixed group. The result is that we KNOW it applies to "sons of Israel" and it MIGHT apply to "children of Israel". Also the passage speaks of the four corners of a garment. Men wore a tunic with four corners at the time, did women wear this garment? Rashi put Tzitzit on his wife's apron as I recall.... the Beit Din ruling was designed to require Tzittzit for men, and allow if for women, in a feminine garment type.

The complete citation is:

Our Rabbis taught: All must observe the law of zizith, priests, Levites, and Israelites, proselytes, women and slaves. R. Simeon declares women exempt, since it is a positive precept dependent on a fixed time, and women are exempt from all positive precepts that are dependent on a fixed time.
(b.Menachot 43a)

R.Simeon was the Nasi and his decree overruled the other Rabbis.

For once... and surprisingly... I'm with Anaiah on this one. If the whole purpose of the tzitzit is to remind us to keep His commandments, then it seems as if women should be included in the commandment as well.

All that from a straightforward, literal reading of the text.

There is a principle in Judaism that says that the reason that women do not have to keep all of the commandments men do, is because they are already closer to YHWH, and this is demonstrated by the fact that they cry more. By this thinking, women need less reminding than men.

Because they cry more? Hmm.
Comment by James Trimm on June 21, 2010 at 11:06pm
i.e. because they feel more.
