Three Generations

Three Generations

 by Reb Gutman Locks

     The 86-year old grandfather, the father, and the son came to Israel from America for a wedding. The grandfather said that he had not put on tefillin in well over 20 years, the father had not put them on for even longer, and the son had never put them on. The boy did not even know what I was doing when I pulled him over and slid the tefillin on his arm. The fathers refused, but I insisted, pulling on them with a smile.

      You can see from the picture that once you talk them into doing it they have a wonderful time. Someone is not doing their job over there or these Jews would be waking up early in the morning looking forward to putting on tefillin.

  2. Good work! Isn't that the Breslov minhag for hand/finger wrapping? Is that your personal minhag? Just wondering!
