Tefillin for the Head, circa 1984
A tefillin (phylactery) for the head consisting of a black leather box with a brown leather strap. The top of tefillin box has one section in Hebrew that designates ''shel rosh'' (for the head). These leather boxes are those which Jewish men from the age of 13 bind with leather straps on the crest of their foreheads during the morning prayers; the leather box contains parchments on which are written the four sections of the Torah in which they are mentioned: ''And you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand and for a remembrance between your eyes'' (Exodus 13:9, and with slight variations in Exodus13:16, Deuteronomy 6:8 and 11:18). Originally belonged to Max Cayton.
