Do we wear Tallit and Tefillin on the High Holidays?

As is the case with every Biblical holiday, the Tallit is worn but not the Tefillin. See On which days of the year don't we put the tefillin on?


In fact, Yom Kippur is the only holiday when the tallit is worn throughout all five of the day's prayers.

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.
Yom Kippur
Day of Atonement. This late-autumn high-holiday is the holiest day of the year. We devote this day to repentance and all healthy adults are required to fast.
Tallit
A prayer shawl. A large four-cornered woolen garment with fringes attached to its corners in a specific manner. This garment is worn by males during the morning prayers, fulfilling the Biblical obligation of attaching fringes to four-cornered garments.
