On wearing grandpa’s tefillin at the Wall

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/opinion/article/on_wearing_grandpas_tefillin_at_the_wall

It’s just before 7 a.m. when I arrive at Kotel Plaza security station to find long lines. My son Andy gets into the swiftly moving line for men. I enter the longer, slowly moving line for women. Andy carries the cloth bag containing our things. I try reaching to remove mine, but Andy stops me.
