For a Once in a Lifetime Event, Tefillin to be Worn a Lifetime!

The Halamish Tefillin Craftery was founded in 1998 by Rav Daniel Halamish who, while still in his 20s, became known as an exceptional scholar and scribe. Rabbi Halamish sought to create a community of scribes and sacred artisans who would craft Tefillin to the highest standards of Halacha and beauty, along with other the sacred texts and objects central to the practice of Judaism: Mezuzot, Torah Scrolls and Megillot.

The highest accomplishment of the tefillin maker’s craft is found only at Tefillin Halamish: The Free Standing Compartments, shown here:
