Tefillin awareness comes to YOSS


The Mechina Division of Yeshiva of South Shore welcomed several sofrim from the Tefillin Awareness Project to its minyanlast Friday. Every talmid had the opportunity to have their tefillin examined and, if necessary, adjusted by an expert.

The program’s director presented a review of common issues that could come up with tefillin and how to resolve them.

Rabbi Zev Davidowitz, Menahel HaMechina, said he was impressed by the thoughtful questions the talmidim asked the sofrim as they were having their tefillin examined. B’Ezras Hashem, their excitement and enthusiasm for this special mitzvah will remain with them for years to come.
