    To Yehoshua and the entire staff,Everyone enjoyed the program that showed investment in content and thought.We began the day with an intensive explanation about Tefillin, their cases and the Parshiot.Afterwards, we experienced the placing of the Parshiot inside the Tefillin, which was exciting for all the members of our family. Finally we enjoyed a tour that was educational and full of values in Hebron with a guide from MedreshetHevron.Continue to make other people happy with a program like this.Nitzan Family

    I would like to make a personal observation.I have attended many talks and seem many films about the preparation of Tefillin, but I have never seen anything like this…Gershon's presentation was wonderful!The film that you made was impressive, interesting and showed that you put a lot into it. You have invested a great deal of thought and effort into developing and carrying out the great project.Hebron can be proud of this important enterprise.Much success!

    RavYehoshua – Shalom and Blessings!We wanted to extend our heartfelt thanks for the uniquely special experience that our son Noam had with his friends at your visitors' center. Placing the Parshiot into the Tefillin can be a technical activity and nothing more – but it can also be a significant experience when a boy gets to know personally how Tefillin are made, and this will stay with him the rest of his life.The entire process is done in a very pleasant and friendly manner, and the amazing audiovisual quiz provided a wonderful ending for the entire occasion.Thank you very much from the bottom of our hearts,Egeltal Family, Kiryat Arba

    RavYehoshua, ShalomThanks for our visit to the visitors' center in Kiryat Arba.We enjoyed the visit very much and the program that you designed. The visit to Ma'arat HaMachpela with Noa from the Midrasha included explanations about the patriarchs' tombs and about the double cave at the base of the building, as well as a tour of Shuhada Street and the Avraham Avinu Synagogue.The tour of the visitors' center, Gershom's explanations on the process of processing the animal skin and the preparation of the Tefillin, included placing the Parshiot inside. The activity film and the quiz were presented in an interesting fashion. Whoever listened to Noa and Gershom knew the answers.And finally, the visit in the winery and the interesting stories of David the winemaker.Thanks you for everything and may you be blessed. Please let me know when the Tefillin are ready.Blessings,Elazar Ben-Ya'akov

    Rabbi of Gilo, Jerusalem

    I certify that I have known the honorable Rabbi Yehoshua Shani for many years... A sublime and pure idea occurred to him: to establish a workshop for manufacturing Tefillin produced in Hebron, that are kosher and Mehudar...I know a number of the scribes, residents of Hebron, who supply the Parshiot. They are devout, and experts in scribal writing. Rabbi Shani has also merited the support of Rabbi Dov Lior, chief rabbi of Hebron, who supervises the workshop and endorses it. Rabbi Lior supervises all the holy products of the workshop and ensures that they are Mehudar. In light of this, I endorse it as well, and call upon the public, especially those who are interested and aspire to strengthen the residents of Hebron, to purchase Tefillin Hebron that are of the highest level of Hiddur...

    Chief Rabbi of Kiryat Shemonah

    I recommend Tefillin Hebron, made with great Hiddur in the City of the Forefathers under the supervision of my dear friend, the eminent Rabbi Dov Lior, Shlita, the chief rabbi of Hebron. It is known that the scribes report to Rabbi Lior, who encourages them to write according to the highest standards. In the Tefillin Mehudarot, only Parshiot written by scribes that HaRav Lior knows personally to be G-d fearing are used. In this factory, Tefillin Mehudarot made from the skin of goats and sheep are made as well, and their level of Hiddur and Kashrut are of the highest standards, according to the custom in Jerusalem for generations. Serving as the director of this project is Reb Yehoshua Shani, one who fears Heaven, a man of valor who does his work with diligence and devotion in Kiryat Arba. I am happy to sign this, to strengthen the settlement of Eretz Yisrael through those that bring merit to the community in the City of the Forefathers.

Please accept my feelings of gratitude for the opportunity to meet with you and visit your wonderful Tefillin Hebron workshop. I rejoiced and my heart was glad when I saw your blessed activities that add to the building and holiness of Kiryat Arba-Hebron, the city of our fathers, may their merit protect us. Baruch HaShem, I was impressed by the Hiddur of the Batim and Parshiot, as well as by the professionalism and proper and sincere attitude towards this important and dear Mitzvah. I hereby certify that, from what I can see, the Tefillin that you produce are mehudarot, and bring glory to Hebron, city of our patriarchs. Whoever purchases Tefillin from Tefillin Hebron can be confident and sure that they have been made to the finest Halachic details and standards of Hiddur
