Quick question

If someone brings tefillin for checking and I see the retzuos are cracked or have white marks and subsequently possul, do I need to tell them to put on tefillin again if it is still before shkiyah? (Or can we rely on the more lenient opinions?)

  1. Sorry, my autocorrect put shkoyach instead of shkiyah, I've changed it now

  2. If within the shiur hameakev you need to suggest they put them on again and out of the shiur it's worthwhile suggesting to anyone who wants to be yotzeh lechatchila.

    1. For both my benefit as well as others who may read this, what is the shiur hameakev you refer to?

  3. The shiur hameakev is what is wrapped around the arm till the end of the finger three times in the most stretched out way. On the shel rosh which drapes (from the right side) till the navel and from the left side which drapes till the chest.
    See Shulchan Aruch HaRav 33:6.

    1. If I remember correctly you may stretch the retzua and do the three crichos however if he wrapped his arm , and the three crichos were done with posul retzuos ,he should put on again.

  4. The shiur hameakev for the shel rosh is the part that goes around the head, the knot plus 2 tefachim.

    While bedieved the shel yad should be long enough to wrap around the arm and 3x around the finger, if, bshaas hadchak, one only has enough to wrap around the arm and tuck it in to hold in place or, lo aleinu, one does not have a lower arm, he fulfills the mitzvah. Wouldn't this then be the shiur hameakev?

  5. Thank you. at any rate, most white marks are around or near the kesher. So in such a case, I should tell the customer to put on again, assuming it is the same day and still before shkiyah
