tefillin

Men and boys aged 13 and up have a special mitzvah to wear tefillin every morning, excluding Shabbat and Holidays. Tefillin are black leather boxes containing small parchment scrolls of selected portions from the Torah, in which the fundamentals of the Jewish faith are inscribed. Wrapping the tefillin on our head and arm facing inwards towards our heart, demonstrates the binding of our thoughts and emotions with Hashem and Torah.
