The Mitzvah


The Mitzvah:

It is a positive command in the Torah to wear Tefillin every single weekday.[1] It incorporates two positive commands, one to wear the head Tefillin and the second to wear the hand Tefillin.[2] This command is repeated in the Torah 4 different times, and hence one who does not wear Tefillin transgresses 8 positive commands.[3]

[1] See Eruvin 96a; Menachos 36b; Kesav Sofer 9

[2] The head Tefillin and arm Tefillin are listed as two separate Mitzvos of the 613. [Sefer Hamitzvos of Rambam Mitzvas 13 and 14]

[3] Menachos 44a
