Tefillin

Trying tallit and tefillin: Working on my hyprocrisy

A few months ago, I realized that I wanted to start wearing Tallit and Tefillin. Not because I had some grand change in ideology, but because I realized that doing so actually goes along with the ideology I’ve professed to have for quite some time.

Women's Tefillah Movement

Orthodox women’s [jwa_encyclopedia_glossary:419]tefillah[/jwa_encyclopedia_glossary] (prayer) groups consist of women who wish to maximize women’s participation in communal prayer while remaining within the [jwa_encyclopedia_glossary:317]halakhic[/jwa_encyclopedia_glossary] parameters of the Orthodox community, and so meet regularly to conduct prayer services for women only.
