The Chabad-Lubavitch Organization's tefillin campaign took 13
young rabbis and rabbinical students throughout the city last week,
stopping at places where Jews congregate. Here, Rabbi Manis
Freedman of Brooklyn helps Hugh Sanders with the prayers and
laying of tefillin in front of the Dexter-Davison Center in Oak Park.
The group also visited hospitals, old-age homes, youth centers and
other institutions in an attempt to encourage observance of the
daily mitzva. Also in the tefillin booth were items on display, such
as publications and records of Hasidic music.
