Next to Godliness

Tefillin, small leather cases containing scrolls of Torah passages, are bound to our arms and foreheads with leather straps at the beginning of weekday morning services before prayer.

Cleanliness is of utmost importance when wearing tefillin. It is advised to use the bathroom before placing tefillin, so that we do not have go, or be distracted by the urge to go, while we are still wearing them.
