Hi chriseeo,

thank you for your kindly comment. Let me try to give a short anwer on your question (some people wrote whole books on this issue):

The man on the picture is wearing a tallit (prayer shawl with four fringes at the edges) and teffilin (philacteries) on his left arm and on his head. Jewish men are obliged to wear tallit and teffilin together during the morning prayer (schacharit) on weekdays.

The tallit with the fringes is worn so that one remembers to keep G'ds laws and to strive for holiness in this way.

The teffilin for the left arm and for the head consists of leather straps, where two small boxes are attached. The boxes contain pieces of parchment with biblical passages (Exodus 13,9 and 13,16; Deuteronomium 6,8 and 11,18). There is written, that Jews should attache a sign (symbol) on their hands and between their eyes in order to obey G'ds commandments and to remember, that He has freed them from slavery in Egypt and has led them into the holy land.
