Very insightful information at the beginning. What about the saying brachot for donning the head tefillin and wrapping the strap around the middle finger?

G-D commands us to put on Tefillin, it's one of his 613 commandments. This I know will never be read in the comments expressed here, but here's what I think. G-D commands the Jewish people to wear these because they need to be constantly reminded of his presence, and not fall victim towards evil practices. You bind it to yourself everyday except shabbos and yom tov, when you do not need a reminder. I do not wear them unless asked by a rabbi, and even then sometimes I politely decline. What you bind to yourselves I carry for him a steadfastly in my heart. I have a deep love for G-D and humanity there and his spirit will dwell there forever and ever. So what do I need Tefillin for?

Excellent demonstration by an excellent demonstrator but there are too many details to observe.........too many details. This is why I consider myself to be an everyday Jew and only observe the mitzvah of having a decent relationship with my fellow man, AND, doing what I can for whom I can.

Putting on tefillin
I like your demonstration, however, I wish you would've shown me how to wrap it back up and put it in the bag. Oh well, maybe next time. All the best,
