The tefillin is not a bomb. I’m going to make this short and sweet for those of you who don’t know what tefillin is and may encounter one before you leave this earth–the teacher teaches what she too needs to learn.

Here’s what it looks like:

Here’s how you put one on:

Here’s who can’t wear one:

and   

In other words, women.

Here is some of the scriptural justification–according the Jewish people–for wearing them:

And it shall be for a sign for you upon your hand, and for a memorial between your eyes, that the law of the LORD may be in your mouth; for with a strong hand did the LORD bring you out of Egypt.
—Exodus 13:9

And it shall be for a sign upon your hand, and as totafot between your eyes; for with a mighty hand did the LORD bring us forth out of Egypt.
—Exodus 13:16

And you shall bind them as a sign upon your arm, and they shall be as totafot between your eyes.
—Deuteronomy 6:8

You shall put these words of mine on your heart and on your soul; and you shall tie them for a sign upon your arm, and they shall be as totafot between your eyes.
—Deuteronomy 11:18

Any questions?

Class is now dismissed Gentiles.
