The two finger breadths away from the elbow, has no sourse [Rav Chaim Pinchas Scheinberger] the two finger breadths away from the tip of the strnum is the base of the heart. - member Aryehshoag
Thank you. I corrected it and instead I wrote that Mishna Brurah 27:4 explains that the tefilin should be placed on the lower half of the bone between the elbow and armpit on the elevated part of the flesh which isn't right near the armpit. [1] writes that the elevated part of the muscle is around the length of 2 fingerbreaths from the armpit. --YitzchakSultan (talk) 15:59, 13 October 2016 (EDT)
