When Can I start?
The program begins on the second day of Rosh Chodesh Iyar, May 5th
There will be a special raffle for any boy who “signs-up” five or more boys during the month of Sivan: a sefer, plus ten coins – dated between 1900 and 1920.
Here are the rules:
Kedushas Tefillin Rules
- You should be davening with a minyan.
- You should be wearing your tefillin from at least “Boruch she’amar” until after “Aleinu.”
- There is no talking (including “mouthing”) with your tefillin on.
- Even if you (mistakenly) talk, you will try not to continue (during that Shacharis).
- The month begins on Rosh Chodesh (second day, when applicable).
- You cannot miss-out more than four times during a month.
- If you have a perfect month, or only miss once - you will receive the following: a set of old coins (which includes: 2 pennies from the 50’s; 2 from the 40’s; 2 from the 30’s), plus you will be entered into threeraffles for sets of seforim.
- If you miss twice or three times, you will still receive the set of old coins, and you will be entered into two raffles for sets of seforim.
- When you have completed your third month, the set of coins will begin to include the following: Pennies from the 20’s; 10’s; 1900’s; 1890’s; 1880’s and even earlier; nickels from the turn of the century; foreign coins, plus more.
- Any boy that hands in 12 cards (and did not win any of the monthly raffles) will receive a sefer.
