Halacha - shul talis
Submitted by Tzvi Schneider  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

It is not necessary to have intention to acquire the talis, because it already belongs to the entire community. However the minhag is not to say a beracha, especially when only putting on the talis to receive an aliya or to duchen. Therefore, the Poskim recommend one be mafkir his portion in the talis to avoid the obligation to say a beracha.
