Phylacteries Wrap Stand for Women in Jerusalem

Women of the Wall, an organization known for fighting for women’s prayer rights at the Western Wall, runs a tefillin, or phylacteries, wrap stand for women in Jerusalem's down town. Municipal approval for the move was received after repeated appeals over several months. Tefillin, two small black boxes containing parchment with verses from the Hebrew Bible are wound around the head and the arm with black leather straps and are considered a commandment in Orthodox Judaism. As such they are traditionally men’s domain only.
