All of our tefillin for sale are made in Israel under the close supervision of Rabbi Asher Zarbiv, who has many years of expertise in the field and a sterling reputation in Jerusalem and beyond. Rabbi Zarbiv is well aware of the pitfalls in tefillin making, both in writing the parchments and constructing the boxes, but by carefully selecting the sofrim (scribes) he works with and closely overseeing the production process, he is able to make tefillin that are 100% kosher, at very affordable prices.
Our tefillin are certified by Mishmeret HaStam. The parchments undergo a computer check followed by a manual check by expert parchment proofreaders (magihim).
Tefillin Peshutim Mehudarim
Our Tefillin Peshutim Mehudarim set comes with a computer scan certificate and a detailed kosher certificate. The battim (boxes) are made of lightweight goat hide. Attractive finishing work. Ideal choice for bar mitzvah tefillin or first-time tefilin buyers.
Tefillin Gassot (“thick phylacteries”) are made out of a single piece of thick cowhide leather shaped by repeatedly applying several tons of pressure in industrial presses as part of a complicated, but delicate and exacting production process. The resulting battim (“houses”) are so thick and durable that they can be reshaped even if damaged.
