We are a company that operates in the Judaica business for four generations. We
are located in Yavne Israel, a Historical city 16 miles south of Tel Aviv.
The Gurkevich family has been in the tallit (prayer shawls) production
and Judaica business for over 70 years and 3 generations.
Moshe Gurkevich arrived in Israel in the year 1920 and established the Tallit factory "Zohar".
His son in law Moshe Yanovsky later joined the business. Moshe Yanovsky was wounded in the Israeli army during the Yom Kippur war while defending the country as a soldier
In 1996 Moshe's son founded the website TALIT.com, the first website selling
Judaica from the holy land, Israel. The website was set up in order to help the
Israeli economy and those working in the Judaica business in Israel.
The website that started selling tallis from Israel to many places worldwide, has developed over the years and has become the big website selling Judaica from Israel. The central office and the warehouse are located in Yavne, a city 22 km from Tel Aviv.
