If at fourth you don't succeed . . .

try, try again.

Since I'd managed to forget to remove my tefillin before Hallel on all three non-Shabbat (non-Sabbath) days of Chol HaMoed Pesach (the intermediate days of Passover, when, if it's not Shabbat, one is permitted to work), I made it a particular point to remember to remove them today. It was only after I finished Hallel that I remembered that, on Rosh Chodesh, one is supposed to remove tefillin before Musaf, not before Hallel.


On the plus side, there's always next Rosh Chodesh, so I won't have to wait too long for another opportunity to get it right.

I suggest leaving your tefillin off entirely for the second day of Rosh Chodesh, and see what that does for your kavanah. :>)
