Kosher Tefillin Sets
Tefillin are known in English as Phylacteries. They are two small leather boxes that are attached to leather straps. Each of the two boxes contains sections of the Bible that are inscribed on parchment. The passages include the Shema prayer which pronounces the
Unity of G-d, the concept of reward and punishment, the duty of the Jewish people to
remember their redemption from Egyptian bondage and the obligation of every Jew to pass
down these matters to his children.
Where are the Tefillin placed?
One of the boxes is attached to the left arm, resting against the heart and one is attached on the head above the forehead. Our attention is thereby directed to the hand, heart and hand and reminds us that we must dedicate ourselves to G-d in all that we think, feel and do. It teaches us that the combination of head and heart are vital in serving G-d- we must not be led by the impulses of the heart or by reason alone.
What is recited when putting them on?
After the Tefillin is placed on the arm, before tightening the straps the following blessing is recited, " Blessed are You, L-rd our G-d, King of the Universe, Who has sanctified us with His commandments and commanded us to put on Tefillin." The Shema prayer is also recited while wearing Tefillin.
