It is best to make yourself part of the community’s prayers. If this is not possible, Tefillin can be worn in the convenience of your home, at your office, or in any available phone booth—as long as it is daytime.

Tefillin
Black leather boxes containing small scrolls with passages of the Bible written on them. Every day, aside for Sabbath and Jewish holidays, the adult Jewish male is required to wrap the Tefillin--by means of black leather straps--around the weaker arm and atop the forehead.
