Eighty-Three-Year Old Russian

at the Western Wall with Reb Gutman Locks on Mystical Paths


     He was leaving the Kotel when I asked him to put on tefillin. He looked at me as if I was an ex-communist cell leader still trying to boss him around. I called over someone from Russia who explained to him what tefillin are. It was the first time in his life that he put them on. There is an opinion that putting on tefillin only once in your entire life satisfies the commandment that G-d gave us 3,300 years ago, “…and you shall bind them as a sign upon your arm….” If so, then Boris is in.

          If you look around, you will find that Jew G-d gave to you to bring in.
