We place the four Parshiot, written on parchment (klaf) in the cases. There is a difference between theTefillin Shel Yad (the Tefillin that are placed on the arm) and the Tefillin Shel Rosh (which are placed on the head). The Tefillin Shel Yad case is a single cube in which are placed the four Parshiot written on a single strip of parchment; the Tefillin Shel Rosh contains four separate compartments, and each one of the fourParshiot is placed inside its own compartment.
In Tefillin Hebron we are especially careful about placing the Parshiot properly in the Tefillin cases. You may personally participate in placing the Parshiot in your new Tefillin, and in this way take part in making them.
The Letter Shin in Tefillin Shel Rosh
It is a Halacha L’Moshe M’Sinai to incise the letter Shin ש into the Tefillin case. This Shin must be part of the leather; it is not glued on. The Shin appears on two sides of the Tefillin, the right and the left. On the right side, the Shin is the regular Shin, consisting of three branches. On the left side, the Shin consists of four branches.
At Tefillin Hebron, we form the Shin on the Tefillin shel Rosh with an exceptional quality finish.
