Tallit, Kippah, Tefilin
The Tallit (or Tallis-ashkenazi) is worn as a reminder to observe all G-d's laws and thereby achieve holiness. A Tallit sets the tone of your prayer. Kabbalists speak of the Tallit as a special gown that inspires awe and reverence during prayer.
Ritual fringes, called Tzitzit are attached to each of the four corners of the Tallit in accordance with biblical law, so that the wearer will "look at these fringes and recall G-d's Commandents".
The Atarah, (Hebrew for crown) or collar, is usually inscribed with the prayer that is recited just before you put on the Tallit. The purpose of the Atarah is to distinguish top verses bottom of the Talit, and uniformity of putting on the Tallit, thus another way of respect is observed.
