The Tehillim Reading Part 10 - The Tefillin Debate

While we were planning out the Tehillim reading, we noticed a problem. When would I take off my tefillin? right after davening, or after the whole Tehillim reading. Of course I also couldn't decide what I wanted, since I was at a big debate with myself. Should I take off my tefillin right after davening, because then the tight straps of the tefillin wouldn't bother me throughout the reading, but on the second hand it would've been a huge mitzvah to read all of sefer Tehillim with my tefillin on. After lots of arguing and fighting, we finally came to a conclusion. The conclusion was, that i'd wear the tefillin for the first sefer, and in the break between the first sefer and the second sefer I would take them off.

Deaar Shaltiel,

Without even reading one word of your blog, we can give you a recommendation -- that you are dependable. When we open our computer, and we go to your blog, there is your next chapter. You write "to be continued" and there it is, the next chapter, as interesting as all the others. Without your entry, we would not have known, that this issue would have arisen.

Keep up the good work. You are our first read of the day!
