Just wondering about the percentages: Do you or don’t you wear Tefillin on Chol Hamo’ed?
I’ll start: No I don’t wear them.
A Gut Mo’ed to all.October 7, 2012 6:40 pm at 6:40 pm #899064
No Tefilin.October 7, 2012 7:29 pm at 7:29 pm #899065oomisParticipant
Being female, that would be a no for every day. In my family the minhag is for the men not to wear tefillin during Chol Hamoed.October 7, 2012 7:59 pm at 7:59 pm #899066yaakov doeParticipant
Of course I do!October 7, 2012 8:13 pm at 8:13 pm #899067147Participant
The Rem’o (HoRav Moshe Isserles ZTKLLH’H) Paskaned to wear Tefillin with a Berocho, and he was such a Choshuv Rabbi, that his Pesak is good enough for me to adhere to.
Hence, even on Hoshana Rabba I lay Tefillin with a Berocho.
BTW:- Whilst on this topic, on 1st weekday Chol haMoed Pesach I keep my Tefillin until after Shelishi of Kerias haToroh, so that I have 2 extra opportunities to kiss my Tefillin, as the commandment of Tefillin is being recited by the Ba’al Koreh.October 7, 2012 8:29 pm at 8:29 pm #899068ShowjoeMember

I live in Israel and minahg EY is that no one wears them as the Gra and the Bet Yosef did notOctober 9, 2012 12:23 am at 12:23 am #899074twistedParticipant
Not in chul, as the yeshiva minhag was to put on b’tzina, and with no bracha, and I had some chasidish blood and leanings, and in EY, the vast majority don’t, and that constitutes minhag hamakom.October 10, 2012 12:59 am at 12:59 am #899075ShowjoeMember
R.T.:”No, not Rashi, not R”T, not S”R.” whats S”R?October 10, 2012 1:24 am at 1:24 am #899077marbehshalomParticipant
the minhag ashkenaz historically was to wear tefillin.
the chassidim and the gra changed the minhag.
those that dont keep any thing chassidish except not to put on tefillin should realize that the chassidim only changed because they lived their lives al pi chasidus and the zohar says not to wear tefllin. someone who does not conduct himself al pi chasidus does not have a license to follow such a minhag.
the proof is from sanz/bobov. all umarried bchurim wear tefiiliin. the reason is that a bochur has no connection with chassidus .
therefor if you do everyting litvish and you run out b4 hallel on pesach nite. you are exactly like a sanz bochur and the minhag insttiuted by chassidus was not meant for you.
of course if you have a legit mesorah from the gra then you are halacha based and not kabbalh based then the above does not applyOctober 10, 2012 1:55 am at 1:55 am #899078midwesternerParticipant

” Just wondering about the percentages: Do you or don’t you wear Tefillin on Chol Hamo’ed? “
Not a very scientific poll. Remember, you are conducting it among people who still use the internet so is it any surprise they do not wear tefillin?October 11, 2012 1:18 am at 1:18 am #899081147Participant
Please take note Ken Zayn, that irrespective of whether you go to work [Lo Oleinu] on Chol haMoed or utilize internet on Chol haMoed, or abstain from these activities, it has absolute no bearing on whether you are to lay Tefillin or not.
The 1 & only factor, that determines & matters & counts is thy Dad’s Minhog, and nothing else.October 11, 2012 8:04 am at 8:04 am #899082just my hapenceParticipant
I’m a yekke who doesn’t wear on chol hamo’ed. It’s a bit of a funny one, I admit, but that’s the family mesora, so hey…
