I Got Tefillin

I’m not going to get into the 40 flavors of cultural weirdness implicit in the video below (for that you’ll have to read my book), and yes, none of our children are old enough (and some aren’t Jewish enough) to be writing songs about bar mitzvah gifts. And yet…this is the my kind of crime against music, ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy.

    Love my tefillin- they are more than 130 years old.

    hmmm, the tune and voice were good, there were some nice pictures, the lyrics though….

    130 year old tefillin. You may like them but I doubt they are still kosher.
