Tefillin should be checked twice in seven years in order to insure that they are kosher.

Bringing your Tefillin

The best way to check your Tefillin is to bring them over or mail them to us. Turn around is two days.

How Should I Mail Them?

When shipping tefillin please make sure to seal them in a Ziploc bag in order to prevent water or moisture from getting in. In addition, make sure to include your name, address and contact information together with them.

What is the Cost of Checking?

The cost of checking most tefillin is $95 per set unless they are Gazot – made of one thick piece of leather.

With this second type of tefillin there is a second optional step of sealing and refinishing them at the base so that they end-up looking much nicer and maintain their square shape overtime. The cost of this additional step is $45.00 and takes an extra three days after they have been checked and sewn closed.

What Happens after you Receive Them?

When we receive your tefillin, we will first perform an outside inspection and notify you if they are in need of additional work. Only afterwards will we open the housings and check the interior parchments.

What Happens if they are not Kosher?

We always carry a full assortment of tefillin housings, parchments, belts and other accessories in case that you may need to replace any of the above components.

Contact us by phone or email to schedule your upcoming tefillin check.
