“And you shall bind them for a sign”

וְשַׂמְתֶּם אֶת דְּבָרַי אֵלֶּה עַל לְבַבְכֶם וְעַל נַפְשְׁכֶם וּקְשַׁרְתֶּם אֹתָם לְאוֹת עַל יֶדְכֶם וְהָיוּ לְטוֹטָפֹת בֵּין עֵינֵיכֶם. 

“And you shall place these words of Mine upon your heart and upon your soul; and you shall bind them for a sign upon your arm and they shall be for ornaments between your eyes.” (Devarim 11:18)

As longtime readers are aware, it’s been about five months BA”H since the most recent Shiputzim bar mitzvah.

However, due to technical reasons beyond my control, I was unable to post pictures of the bar mitzvah boy’s beautiful tefillin bag until today.

But now this issue has finally been resolved, and so, without further ado, here’s the lovely tefillin bag that the bar mitzvah boy’s Savta designed and needle-pointed for him:

Of course, this is far from the first tefillin bag that this particular Savta made. Additional examples of her handiwork are available here and here.

May the bar mitzvah boy continue to use his tefillin in good health and happiness ad 120, and may he and each of his siblings continue to bring incredible joy and nachat to us, their grandparents, and all of Klal Yisrael.
