“One who does not learn Shulchan Aruch or Chayei Adam can absolutely not do mitzvos of the Torah as they must be done. We see some Jews are not fulfilling the mitzvah of tefillin and are making invalid brachos because the tefilah shel rosh is on their forehead…the whole tefilah shel rosh must lie where hair grows. And the yod of the tefilah shel yad must be slid against the shel yad. Also, one must have them checked once every three and a half years. Therefore, every Jew who desires to observe Torah and mitzvos must learn every day and understand the rulings that pertain to daily life.”
Some slightly confused logic there.
I just wonder, why would someone go to the trouble of printing this? People Who Lay Their Tefillin Wrong are a perennial peeve of people who take pride in being The Sort Of Person Who Does Things Correctly, but printing a whole flyer? Also, note the weird shape of this piece. Was it nailed on a wall or something and the tatty corners removed later?
