  2. You should be wearing your tefillin from at least “Boruch she’amar” until after “Aleinu.”
  3. There is no talking (including “mouthing”) with your tefillin on.
  4. Even if you (mistakenly) talk, you will try not to continue (during that Shacharis).
  5. The month begins on Rosh Chodesh (second day, when applicable).
  6. You cannot miss-out more than four times during a month.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
