I received this email from Montreal, if anyone can help please respond

I just heard about your blog and wonder if you could post a question for me?

I have a pair of meyuchasdike parshas Rashi Tfillin written in 5741 by R' Yaakov Silberman obm in Montreal. There is now a psul in the 2nd and 3rd parsha of shel rosh.

I wonder if anyone knows of someone who might be interested in selling Rashi parshios from Reb Y. Silberman, or has put away the last 3 parshios mehudorim - ksav Admor Hazaken - written in the last 30 years?

Note: Obviously Mr Weinbaum would need a whole new rosh by Rav Silberman, since there is no real way to ascertain kesidran unless exact dates can be verified.


  1. Furthermore dates of Bar Mitzvah are not a proof - sometimes sofrim and sochrim can have a parshay in stock for up to a number of years. Also, sometimes parents order the tefillin well in advance. I am holding onto some prshiyos for someone's son who is only 7.

  2. The reason why he wants the last 3 is because Rav Silberman A"H kept a book of when they were written and to who they were sold to.
