I often get comments on my articles from fellow congregants. This past Shabbat I received a wonderful validation about my position that one should not remove one’s tallit until after Adon Olam. A friend came over and told me he would wait until after Adon Olam to remove his tallit based on my article (“My Tallit” December 17, 2020). Then he told me he was once in Amsterdam for business and davened in a “yekishe” shul on Shabbat. He started to take off his talis after Alenu. An usher approached him and gave him a card informing him he had to pay a fine of three guilders for this breach of protocol!
