So long, תפלין! See you in 9 days! (or 3 depending on your minhag).
I'm always pleasantly suprised at how many chassidish guys - or to rephraze how many chassidish looking guys - who must be ingarish etc have not changed this minhag and still openly wear their תפלין on chol hamoed with their chassidish levush. This is such an important mitzva that they have changed many of their minhagim and dress but not this. Kudos to them!
Please post stories or anecdotes which show the importance of תפלין or how they have saved lives etc.
