Summary of Today's Chumash
The seventh aliyah contains the mitzvahs of "Pidyon ha-ben", the redemption of the first born son, and of tefillin. This section of Torah is one of the sections written on the parchment inside tefillin, and is recited by some while wearing the tefillin (as seen on page 85 of the siddur Tehillat Hashem).
