Three in Teffilin Just like wisdom, knowledge and understanding where understanding is a mix of the two and generosity,strictness and beauty where beauty is a mix of the two so too with yarmulkah, tzitzit and tefillin.

Yarmulkah concentrates on the thought that G-D is above us. With tzitzit we remember all the commandments of the Torah. Teffilin has two parts: The teffilin of the head and the teffilin of the arm. The head represents thought and the hand represents action.

A further difference is that Teffilin is from the Torah, tzitzit too but only if you are wearing a four cornered garment, and finally yarmulkah is a minhag (custom). Reply

It's all relevant Check out this guide to tallis and tefillin! (www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/110306/jewish/Tallit-and-Tzitzit.htm)
Maybe it will clear a few things up. Reply

I'ts all relevant mordechai's point is valid.
maybe it was chol hamoed, the intermediary days in yom tov that we put a tallis on but no teffilin. Reply

TO WHATS TALLIS WITHOUT TEFILLEN it doesnt make a difference.....tallis tefillen...like big woops...and this is obviously a video thats not for you....there doing an amzing job...keep it up!!! Reply

mordechai bklyn, ny December 22, 2007

what's tallis without tfillin? i think u should have made it tzitzis not tallis, i mean, what's a tallis witout tfillin? if barry plegded to put on a tallis, he should have first put on tfillin. tzitzis makes more sense because the strings and knots (as mentioned by barry) are realy what make you remember the 613 mitzvos. besides the strings on the tallis are tzitzis.

Who's driving? I would assume Jono is driving, because he's on the left side of the car, but...

1. He doesn't look like he's driving

2. If I was Itche, I wouldn't let Jono drive my car. Reply

Stripopotomus Very funny to see the sign in the zoo for the Stripopotomus...loved this edition. Great job Reply

Yossi B Brooklyn, NY November 23, 2007

Great show, but... I think the characters should wear seat belts when driving.

Keep those great shows coming- they help my son eat his meals. Reply

g-fish don't you know, jono ate g- fish for his shabbos meal, since there was a shortage of g- fish in jonotown! Reply

G-Fish via chabadflamingo.com November 16, 2007

Message from G-Fish To everyone who is wondering where I went to:

Please do not be alarmed. I am currently working with the Mossad on a secret misson. I and serveral other highly-trained gefilte fishes are planning to parachute into enemy territory and drown our enemies in gefilte fish broth.

Please don't tell anybody about this mission because it's TOP SECRET!

RE: CANDY FROM CLEANERS Good point.

I thought the same thing, but... The cleaner guy was Russian, so he was probably a Russian Yid.

Still, it that was only a rationalization of why he wasn't shown checking. Maybe it would have been better if it showed him looking at the candy, then a close-up of a big CHK on the back of the candy? Or, he could also have looked at it, put it back and have the Rav ask why, after which he could say "I didn't see a Heckser." But then that would mean the Russian Yid was leaving non-Kosher candy out, so that wouldn't be good.

Maybe if the sign said "Kosher Kleaners"?

I don't know how best to handle it, but I agree that you do have a good point. Reply

This is no fringe mitzvah! The tallit and tzitzit serves as constant reminders of our obligations to G-d and our fellows.
