Tefillin of the High Priest

Question: How did the High Priest in the Temple wear Tefilin while also wearing a head dress?

Answer: The High Priest was able to wear Tefillin – the Sages explain that the golden “Tzitz” band was on his forehead, the hat was fairly high up on the head (and was held on by a framework of blue strings), and there was room in between for the Tefillin, just above the hairline.

Best wishes,
