JEWISH TARTAN IS OFFICIAL AND REGISTERED...

The Scottish Tartans Authority has approved and registered a Jewish Tartan. It was initiated by Rabbi Mendel Jacobs, who is the only Scottish-born Rabbi living in Scotland. It's 100% Kosher - a non- wool/linen mix, and is designed to incorporate many aspects of Scottish-Jewish cultural and religious history.

The Scottish Tartans Authority was formed in 1996 by Scotland's leading weavers and tartan retailers and enjoys a unique mix of governors from both the private and commercial sectors. It has been joined by its kindred spirit in the USA - the International Association of Tartan Studies (IATA) and the Tartan Educational and Cultural Association (TECA) and a representative from those bodies serves on its Board of Governors. One vitally important objective has been to compile and maintain the International Tartan Index to record and document all known historical tartans and to provide a free, dependable and accountable information resource for the public and a 'register' for the Recording of all new tartans.

THIS IS THE APPROVED AND REGISTERED TARTAN

The Authority describes the new tartan thus:- "A tartan, not only for the Jewish population in Scotland, but for Jews and non Jews anywhere in the world. Initiated by Rabbi Mendel Jacobs of Glasgow, it was designed by Brian Wilton of the Scottish Tartans Authority. The central gold line on navy blue represents the gold from the Biblical Tabernacle, the Ark of the Covenant and the many ceremonial vessels. The silver is from the Scroll of Law and the red represents the traditional Kiddush wine. The brightest section of the tartan is the blue and white of the Israeli flag. There are seven lines in the central motif and three in the flag - both numbers of great significance in the Jewish world. "

The registration number in the International Tartan Index is 7615.
