Mehudar Tefillin Gassot (“thick phylacteries”) are made out of a single piece of thick leather shaped by repeatedly applying several tons of pressure in industrial presses as part of a complicated, but delicate and exacting production process. The resulting battim (“houses”) are so thick and durable that they can be reshaped even if damaged.
Made according to the Shulchan Aruch HaRav and adhering to all Chabad hiddurim, including Arizal writing.
All stages of production, from inserting the parchments to closing and painting the battim and all other finishing steps of making your tefillin are done in Jerusalem under the kashrut supervision of Rabbi Shammai K'hat HaCohen Gross, head of Mishmeret HaKodesh for STa"M.
