i love new york…..

there is no shortage of culture, religion, and belief in new york city. the subway is no exception.

certain jewish groups like the pharisees believe that the words of the Torah are to be inscribed on a scroll and placed directly between one’s eyes and on one’s arm. Tefillin are wrapped around the arm seven times, and the straps on the head are adjusted so they fit snugly.

  1. Phylacteries. I’ve seen them once or twice, but never in a New York subway. Thanks for sharing.
