A place for English speaking sofrim (scribes), magihim (examiners), rabbis and vendors of Stam (Torah, Tefillin and Mezuzah scrolls) from around the world to communicate, share ideas, ask questions and offer support and advice.
I have checked these tefillin before and have noted this issue, however the owner of these tefillin would now like a conclusive opinion on whether the revach is suitable or he should change the parshiyos.
The owner is Chabad Anash who likes to be mehader in mitzvos etc
the issue of course is that there are not 9 large letters as required lechatchillah acc to S'A harav
We all know that there is no ancient source that requires ink to be מן המותר בפיך . Possibly, as said here before, because in the olden days ink was always מן המותר בפיך and the question was never raised. It was probably self-evident. Nowadays, no decent Rav will approve an ink which is not מן המותר בפיך . Who was the first one to raise this question? Was it raised because of animal ingredients or because of non-kosher wine?
