I can’t think of any purchase more personal than the purchase of tefillin. Don’t you want to know who wrote them, and that he is the kind of person you can relate to. For example, if you are a Belzer Chasid wouldn’t you like to know that he can relate to Belzer Chasidus? Don’t you want the sofer to talk to you and your son, explaining to them how the tefillin are made, and how much kidushah (holiness) they have? You will want me to teach you how to put them on and care for them, won’t you? Don’t you want to know that I know the sofer who wrote them, and that I trust him like a brother?
Give me a call. Let’s talk about your upcoming tefillin ownership.
