Tosafos R’ Hershel Schachter 250 716 rhecht

The thought behind this opinion is as follows: 7 winds of 7 chulyos is based on that the Gemara in Menachos (Perek Hatecheiles) states “no less than 7, no more than 13.” Almost every commentary assumes that those numbers refer to 3-wind chulyos. However, the Gemara isn’t explicit in what exactly the numbers 7 or…

Rambam Method

Rambam Method 196 861 rhecht

From Ptil Tekhelet: The Rambam understands the idea of Ptil as the string which winds around the others.

R’ Shalom Arush (Breslov) Tying Method 1529 2048 rhecht

This tying method is an interesting combination of 7-8-11-13, divided by both knots and Rambam-style Yemenite chulyot. Rather than the first and last winds only being techeiles, the first and last chulyot are winds, and white is used in the event a chulya ends and begins at one of the 5 knots. The final result…
