Tefillin (Hebrew: תפילין‎) are a set of small cubic leather boxes painted black, containing scrolls of parchment inscribed with verses from the Torah, with leather straps dyed black on one side, and worn by observant Jews during weekday morning prayers.

To wear Tefillin is one of the most important Mitzvah in the whole Torah.

The obligation of  tefillin is mentioned four times in the Torah: twice when recalling the The Exodus from Egypt:

And it shall be for a sign for you upon your hand, and for a memorial between your eyes, that the law of  the Lord may be in your mouth; for with a strong hand did the Lord bring you out of Egypt”  – Exodus 13:9;

And it shall be for a sign upon your hand, and as totafot between your eyes; for with a mighty hand did the Lord bring us forth out of Egypt” – Exodus 13:16;

and twice in the Shema passages:

And you shall bind them as a sign upon your arm, and they shall be as totafot between your eyes” – Deuteronomy 6:8

You shall put these words of mine on your heart and on your soul; and you shall tie them for a sign upon your arm, and they shall be as totafotbetween your eyes”  – Deuteronomy 11:18.
