Mishna Berura Summaries

Siman 37 – The time for tefillin

  1. Because tefillin need a clean body, the minhag has become not to wear them all day long. Nevertheless, every man must have them on while saying Shema and tefilla. (ShA2)
  2. If for some reason you didn’t have tefillin then, you are still obligated all day long not to let the day pass without having layed them. (MB6)
  3. Men of great deeds learn Torah after tefilla with their tefillin on. They must beware of idle speech which also removes their minds from their tefillin. (MB7)
  4. Nowadays, the minhag is to train boys to lay tefillin two or three months before turning thirteen years old. (MB12)
