  1. The question is, why do they want to wear tefillin. If a woman wants to wear tefillin because she feels closer to Hashem and more spiritual, that is one thing. But if she wants to wear tefillin because men do so” why shouldn’t she!” or, as some WOW supporters say, “they want to liberate Orthodox women”, that is quite something else. I have an acquaintance who went to a woman’s minyan because she felt it would enhance her Yiddishkeit. She stopped going after a few times because she found there was less spirituality and more of an agenda going on.

  2. Women, plural. Thus the correct English would be “women ARE”. Having said that, tefillin are the visual reminder to the promiscuous male how NOT to behave which, in today’s world, is very pertinent to the behavior of some women. That’s why women wear tefillin; to remind themselves and others about a code of conduct increasingly under attack.

  5. Women can and should learn Torah. But Tefillin is a man’s obligation. It’s not a matter of sexism, G-d gave the comandment of wearing Tefillin to men alone.

  7. From all the articles I’ve read and even from these comments I think the issues have to be separated, is a woman not being allowed to wear tefillin because it is not halachically correct or is it not allowed because of the
    reason the woman may want to wear the tefilllin.
    Women do not do what they do to compete with men! Isn’t it possible women do what they do because they what want to!
