A reference in the verification of tefillin
We offer the service to purchase, inspect, and repair your tefillin by a trained and experienced chamaim sofir. The tefillin and mezuzot we provide come with guarantees. We are also at your disposal to come and collect your tefillin at your home, your place of work, etc. Additionally, we are happy to help and advise you in purchasing tefillin for another source. Do not hesitate to contact us.
We also have a geniza to bury tefillin, parchments that would no longer be kosher, not recoverable or torn, according to Jewish law. Indeed, sacred objects should not be thrown in the trash. It is imperative to treat them with respect and bury them in a geniza. We are at your disposal to arrange their burial according to Jewish law.
Tefillin are black casings that contain scrolls. They are attached to the arm and head by leather straps. Only men, and young men who have reached the religious majority (age 13), have the obligation to put tefillin every day during the morning prayer (shaharit). Just like the mitzvah of placing mezouzot at the entrance of the house and at each of our doors, the mitzvah of putting the tefillin finds its origin in a passage of the Shema Israel. It reads, “You will tie them [these words] as a symbol on your arm, and wear them as a forehead between your eyes” (Deuteronomy 6, 8).
