I am a twenty two year old serving in the armored corpe. As few weeks ago during a tank exercise, my backpack fell off the tank in which I was in. I jumped off and rushed to put the pack on the side where I thought it would be safe. The exercise continued and then I heard someone on the communication equipment saying “B2, you just ran over your friends backpack”!
My name is (withheld as the sender is on active duty) a combat soldier in the “Nachal Yehuda brigade. Two weeks ago while returning to my base I got to the central bus station in Jerusalem. I prayed Mincha, (the afternoon prayers), and then went to the terminal for my bus. When the bus came, I put my pack with my Tfidanit in it into the baggage compartment under the bus. Somehow, without my knowing it, my bag was taken out of the compartment and left on the sidewalk.
There are many times during the year where we must travel, whether for business or pleasure. The changes in temperature and humidity are dangerous to your Tefillin.
