Ask the rabbi Halacha Reading of Shema

Tzitzit in Shema

Rabbi Chaim Tabasky24 Tishrei 5767

Question
Dear Rabbi, I am left-handed and put my tefillin on my right arm. Which hand should the tzit-tzit be held during the Shema?
Answer
Since the right hand is placed over the eyes when reciting shema, the tzitzit are held in the left. If you [place your left over your eyes, you can hold tzitzit in right but there is no compelling reason to do so.
