The place of Tefillin Shel Rosh
Shalom to the Rav: I am a Gabbai of the Bet Haknesset. Sometimes a Gabbai not only calls people up for Aliyot but has to be in charge of Seder in the Kehillah. One of the men who pray at our Shacharit minyan spend his whole shacharit looking at other people’s Shel Rosh and telling them to correct it s position. He always finds them to be a little bit off and he motions to them until they move it. Many have told him bluntly to leave them alone, but he feels it is mission from Shamayim to do this. They have to come to me to ask him to stop or tell him he can ‘t pray here anymore. Is he correct? Maybe if I post clear instructions of where the Tefillin Shel Rosh needs to be he will stop.
