"Unto Me"--A Meditation on Tefillin

For Cantor Markowitz, z"l

-"Unto Me, Unto Me" the hazan told us with a smile

--showing us to wrap the black straps over our arms towards our hearts

---Even today, more than twenty years later, "Unto Me" whispers in my ears as I lay tefillin.

----With each wrap, we bring Gd's presence into our lives,

-----seven times for the Seven Days of Creation.

------"Unto Me, Unto Me" each day of creation was for my sake,

-------Gd created the world so I could repair it "Unto Me, Unto Me."
