Gassos Battim by the Starek Battim Company

 If you would like to own new tefillin battim consider battim made by the Starek Family.

* The Starek family has been making battim for generations.
* I have over fifteen years of experience with Starek Battim.
* They come recommended by Rabbi Yaakov Michael and Rabbi Nachmen Guttman, two well known battim machirs.
* They stand behind their work.
* They produce battim that are so strong and well made you will be able to pass them down to your children.
* Starek Battim are made without production shortcuts common in many other battim.
* Hashgachah (rabinical supervision) from the very beginning until the very end, including the final painting process.
* Several levels of battim are available at various prices.
*All aspects of the manufacturing process are done in-house. They even make their own paint. Many cheaper battim are made by companies that only do part of the work, making it difficult to find who is responsible should there be any defects. Farmed out steps in the manufacturing process also make it difficult to have complete hashgacha (rabbinic supervision).

I personally own and use Starek Tefillin Battim for myself and my family, and I recommend them to you as well.

The tanning of the leather that these battim are made from is avodas yad. The squaring of the bayis is not avodas yad. Many poskim feel that the small use of electricity in creating these battim does not make them ‘machine made’, and they retain their status of avodas yad. The shin is also avodas yad. These battim are prudos (seperated), meaning that the four compartments of the shel rosh are separated all the way to the bottom, with no glue to hold them together, just as the avodas yad is made. Practically and in halacha there is very little difference between these battim and avodas yad battim, so if you want good battim, and you want your tefillin to be considered mehudar, purchase these battim and good parshios, and you will have a very nice, and mehudar set of tefillin

These battim are made completly by hand and are painted by my battim macher locally. This insures an extra level of kashrus, as any flaws in the battim are visible before painting, and can be dealt with appropriately, or rejected if they don’t meet my standards.
