According to your siddur, I need to put on Tallith and Tefillin before the Shma-prayers. That’s logical because the Shma-prayers make references to Talith and Tefillin. Between the recitation of Shma and Amida no interruption should be made, so I guess I can’t take off my Talith and Tefillin at that time. After the Amida, there is prostration during – I guess – the Tachanun-prayers. Does this mean that I should prostrate with my Talith and Tefillin on? This sounds strange to me. And in your diagram you show a person with only his Talith on and no Tefillin. I’m a bit confused. My question is: Is it possible or advisable to prostrate with or without Talith and / or Tefillin on?
