Tefillingate?

As a coda to your “Tefillingate” issue, your gallery page featured a large picture of the sixth- and seventh- graders at Temple Emanuel of Closter, proudly showing off “tefillin” that they had “made themselves.”

I’d be interested in knowing, though I highly doubt, if their “tefillin” actually contained the kosher parchment that actually make tefillin acceptable for use in tefilla. Which is just as well, because painted in rainbow colors as they were, and worn incorrectly, these youngsters did not as much observe a mitzvah as much as they made a mockery of one.
