Tefillin from Golf Manor Synagogue
Single square, black painted box (batim) centered on a slightly larger square, black painted platform. The 3 layered platform is sewn together. A black painted leather strap passes through a triangular, notched opening on the lower end of the platform. The strap is knotted and tightly coiled around itself and loosely coiled around the box. The strap reverse is natural leather. The box should contain a parchment scroll inscribed with 4 Torah verses.
Tefillin are ritural objects worn on the arm and the head by some Jewish males during morning prayers.
