Is there anyone here besides me who says a bracha when putting on tefillin on chol hamoed? I’ve never met anyone else.
I’ve met plenty of people who put it on without a bracha…
And some of them space out and say the bracha by mistake…
ya but with a bracha? not too common…
Why no bracha? (For those that put it on.)
Many say a brachah.Rama.
Mishna Brura says it is preferable not to.
The original minhag ashkenaz was to wear tefillin. Why shouldn’t those who still keep it make a bracha?
I myself wear Tefillin and make a bracha. I believe this is the prevailing minhag of those of German descent.
Toi, do you keep it on through Mussaf?
no. my minhag is to wear it till hallel on succos and till mussaf on pesach. i didnt make it up so dont yell at me.
Toi— On Chol Hamoed Pesach, do you keep your teffilin on until musaf on all of the days of chol hamoed or just the first day in which teffilin are referenced in the krias hatorah?
For those asking why no bracha, I assume it is because “safek brachos lehakel”, so no bracha
What is the safek about?
Yes, I wrap with a bracha. Yekkish minhag.
im a yekke too. that seems to be the only ppl though. on pesach all days till mussaf.
I am also I Yekka. On Chol Hamoed Succos all days until hallel. On chol hamoed paesach 1st day until after krias hatorah, all other days until hallel.
