Torah, tefillin and mezuzah montageThe answers to the most common questions we receive are answered on the website. Please check the appropriate educational links on the lower, left side to see if your answer may be found there. Issues such as: What is tefillin, mezuzah and megillah, how to adjust the head tefillin, how to put on tefillin, where and how to put up a mezuzah scroll, etc., have all been anticipated and therefore we made the answers readily available on the site. We apologize that we will be unable to answer questions that are clearly answered on the website nor any questions not related to our field of expertise. If your question is likely answered on the website but you are still unclear please tell us.

Those with questions unrelated to our field of expertise are kindly requested to submit them to one of the many Ask the Rabbi sites.
