Can I Do Something Forbidden for the Sake of Education?

Responsa Radio #76

I work at Hillel where some students were interested in learning how to wrap tefillin, and they asked if it’s possible to do a workshop on Shabbat, which would be the best day timing-wise to hold the program. I know there is a prohibition on wearing and handling tefillin on Shabbat. This made me curious about the parameters of "Leshem Hinukh." What is the goal of this concept and how far-reaching does it apply?
