Tora Scholars Wear White

Someone just showed me that in today's daf yomi, Kidushin 72a, the Talmud says that the Tora scholars of Babel look like ministering angels, Rashi says this is due to the fact that they wear white clothing, check it out.

Na Nach Nachmu Nachmun MayUman!

back in the day Jews used to wear a lot of red and white apparently some mephorshim say based on the pasuk in the bracha from Yaakov Avinu to Yehuda that his teeth should be white and his eyes red.

This post makes me think of the vayach et edom color red post.

In my own opinion, two things happened.
One, Jews started wearing black in mourning over Beis HaMikdash.

Also red and white probably became socially awkward because the yushkiniks were all about it, look at the big guy with the sled... And they rock the red kippahs all day... This bothers me, and it is like the tree too, which Jews used to have trees and stuff more festive in Shevat and for Tu Bishvat, until again the yushkiniks took that too.
We are coming back home to our land and the full revival and flourishing of Yiddishkeit on every level of ruchniyus and gashmiyus bkdusha, doraita drabanan, minhag. In modern times it's like how now just saying the totally normal in Tanach times and still just cool to express ones desire for the true Melech HaMoshiach, Moshiach Tzidkeinu, when Jerusalem which be called Hashem is there'. As the neviim say, and we will have a king called Hashem Tzidkeinu as the Neviim. This is the teaching of Moshiach! Many tzadikim are known as the name of a famous Sefer of theirs, so let's just say if the Neviim are calling Moshiach by the name Hashem Tzidkeinu, then much like the Chofeitz Chaim and the Baal HaTurim among others, Moshiachs name, specifically as the Navi says the name which the people will call him, the popular name so to speak, is his teachings, like Na Nach is the song, and it's the ten letters and the song and the Tikkun hklali are the teaching of Na Nach...
Moshiach teaches us Hashem Tzidkeinu.

So yeh, let's rock the white clothes, and the red detailed taleisim, nanachnachmanahmanmeuman
