Subject:  tefilin
Message:  K'vod HaRav,
I learned to pray in the Syrian community. I, therefore sit when I bless and wrap the tefelin shel yad. I am now praying @ a Shul that follows Morrocan minhagim. I was corrected by someone in the Kahal saying that I should stand whilst making the bracha, make the first wrap and THEN sit. Is this correct, or is it just their minhag?
Can you give me a source to quote in support of the Syrian Minhag? Thank-you and
Tizku l'misvot.
Reply:  Whichever way it is done in the shul you are davening is ok. Look at Siman 25 # 11 in the Rama, Mishna Berura, Kaf Hachaim, etc.
