Tefillin

Tefillin are special cubic leather symbols with black straps, given by God as a commandment to the Jewish people in memory of the liberation from Egyptian slavery. Inside they are parchment scrolls, where four paragraphs from the Pentateuch are scribed in very small handwriting. The text of all scrolls contains 3,188 Hebrew letters of Moses' prophecy.
