    Many people, both in the Chassidic community and beyond, don Rabbeinu Tam’s Tefillin after having donned Rashi Tefillin when davening Shacharis. Some, however, believe that this is a mere “Minhag” (custom) or Kabbalistic stringency and is not halachically mandated.

    Moreover, various arguments have been put forth questioning and challenging the practice of donning Rabbeinu Tam’s Tefillin.

    In this newly-released publication, authored by Rabbi Moshe Wiener (author of Sefer Hadras Ponim Zokon and Sefer Kvuda Bas Melech), the various arguments have been presented, each accompanied by well-documented, brief responses based on the works of Torah giants of recent generations. This Hebrew booklet paints a clear picture of the importance of wrapping Rabbeinu Tam Tefillin every day, not merely as a custom or stringency but as a halachic imperative.

    Among the topics covered are:
    The origin of the two views of Rashi and Rabbeinu Tam;
    The credibility of the tefillin discovered in the tomb of Yechezkel;
    A discussion why both pairs are donned—out of doubt or because both are necessary;
    The opinions of the Vilna Gaon and the Aruch Hashulchan;
    An analysis of whether donning Rabbeinu Tam’s Tefillin entails Yuhara (arrogant conduct).

    Packed with references and informative quotations, this booklet is sure to enlighten any reader who desires to know the stance of Halachah on this important subject.
