Writing Tefillin

Filed under: What can we do? — Reb Moshe @ 6:29 am

I am writing some tefillin in honor of Chanukah. I really like writing and if it wasn’t for all the time I spend in kiruv, I would probably write all day. In the middle of the night I had noticed I made a raish a drop small so the halacha teaches to show it to a child. I waited for him to wake up and then I asked him which letter he thought it was. When he said it was a raish and didn’t call it a vav, I started hugging him and squeezing him. I wonder what I would have done if he called it a mistaken Vav and I had to erase.

Children with their simple pureness are asked this question purposely because they won’t contemplate the answer but will just come out with what they think. I want to write a divar torah on this but my eyes are closing. Asa… can you finish?

  3. Considering that children are the first mitzvah of the entire torah, a mitzvah for all mankind, the fact that they are born pure and all are born on the same level…

    Moshe, you take over.
