Thank you. You did one prayer. Aren't there others to make when the tefillin are on ? Reply

It depends on what sect of Jew you are they are Chabad so they only say one. I am a standard Ashkenazi Jew so we say two one for the head and arm. Reply

Is this the same Rabbi Dovid Dubov who some years ago was in Princeton, NJ? Reply

Does it hurt your hands, arms, and head to wear it though? It looks painful to have something tied around yourself. Reply

No you actually barely feel it! You’re not tightening the straps until blood flow is cut off, just until the straps are tight enough not to move around. Reply

Wrapping around the finger Nice video, although I believe it says in Sefer Haminhogim that the final wrapping around the middle finger is not on top of the first one, rather it is next to it but on the same joint. Reply

Thanks The best training video I've ever seen. It's easy to understand how to put on the Tefillin properly and follow the instructions. It's nice to see the mitzvah without any haste. Thank you very much! Reply

Tightening the loop I would have liked to see the part that proves most difficult, namely, tightening the loop right at the very beginning. For most beginners it is here that the tefillin wobble out of position. In this video, even the tightening of the noose is not shown. Reply
