We read in the Torah about Jewish soldiers who are drafted for war. We are told that there are certain transgressions, which if done, would exempt a person from serving in the army. Among these it’s explained, are, those who speak between the arm tefillin and the head tefillin. This seems quite odd, why is this so important to uphold – what’s so special about not having an interruption between the arm and head tefillin? Rabbi Ari Enkin shares a lesson about Tefillin and a lesson for life.

Hi! It is not in the Torah. It is a tradition from the rabbis. Talmud, Sota 44a.
