Tefillin Peshutim Mehudarim
A Jewish boy begins to wear tefillin from the age of bar mitzvah – an expression of identity and pride to be part of the Jewish people. The Tefillin comprise of two black boxes and straps that are carefully placed on the head and the hand. The boxes contain ritually written parchments scrolls prepared in accordance with stringent halachic rules.
The huge variations in the cost of tefillin reflect the great difference in quality and level of hidur – the special beauty we give to the mitzvah. The peshutim are the most basic low-cost tefillin using many leniencies. The next stage is peshutim mehudarim tefillin. Like the peshutim tefillin they are also crafted from separate pieces of leather. They are relatively low cost since the boxes are not made of cowhide but from the less expensive and lightweight goatskin. These tefillin need to be handled with great care - they are not as durable as the superior gassot tefillin. However, the parchments come with a computer and a kashrut certificate so you are receiving guaranteed quality.
To ensure you are using tefillin that are halachically correct for you, please specify whether your left or right hand is the dominant hand. The drop down choice box will also ask you whether you want a clockwise or counter clockwise wrapping style. Another choice is the option of the style of the parchment script – either Ktav Ari for those following the Chassidic Sefardi custom or Ktav Beit Yossef used by those following the Ashkenazi tradition.
