by Reb Gutman Locks at Mystical Paths
I was trying to convince a young American tourist to put on tefillin, but no matter what I said, his response was the same, “I used to put them on, but I don’t believe in it anymore, and I don’t want to do it.” Then out of the blue he asked, “What’s your name?” When English speakers ask my name, I usually tell them my English name.
“Gil,” I told him.
He said, “Okay, for you I’ll put them on. I read the book.”*
I smiled. Whatever their reason for putting on tefillin is not so important right now. Once they have them on and try to open their hearts, their whole world can change.
If there is someone out there you would like to help, let him read your copy. It has touched a lot of lives. Could be it will touch his, too.
