Ki Tetze: Chapter 28

Head and hand Tefilin


We are told about Rosh Hashanah and the meaning of the knot of the hand Tefilin. Rabbi Shimon addresses Metatron calling him a servant to his Master and yet a king over all other peoples and over the angels. He says that the sound of prayer and the sound of the Shofar are like spears stabbing and killing the Evil Inclination.
