I have been making a lot of headway on Gabriel's tallit. I have one colored stripe left and two cream areas. After I finish knitting the main body, it is on to the fringe and the prayer that goes around the collar. We have chosen to use Shema Yisra'el... (Hear, Israel). This prayer is beautiful in it's simplicity. Here is the first line of the prayer in Hebrew, transliteration and English.
Sh'ma Yisra'eil Adonai Eloheinu Adonai echad.
Hear, Israel, the Lord is our G-d, the Lord is One.
