See here in R. Eider's tefillin book, starting around page 164 I think. He distinguishes between the two and between tallit and tefillin bags:

Thanks for the link! It's great! unfortunately he doesn't address the all-important question in the OP. He also doesn't address the trend towards leather or other funky tefillin bags. A regrettable oversight.

Don't bet on it.

Are you informing me that my year-long wait is going to not bear any fruit?

Mind you the real shandah is that often the tefillin and tallit bags of the MO are not even velvet. And worse, do not always have the obligatory plastic cover. Mind you it is moot. Becausr they don't even wear tefillin -- they just put the bag conspicuously in the car on dates to let the date know the expectation is the date will extend to the morning.



Yeah, but they do daven--as in "please, G-d, let me score tonight......"

My husband's don't match. I bought one tallis bag when we were engaged, before I knew that the family had a specific style of doing the names. (and a horrible representation of hands during Bircas Cohanim which I do not regret at all not having, though I feel a little bad that he's the only one that doesn't have it) So a little while later, I bought a second one for his weekday tallis and tefillin, but he just switched over the tefillin bag from the first set since it had his initials on it already. Come to think of it, I have no clue what happened to the second tefillin bag.

I don't even know what my husband's look like to know if they do or don't match, but I'm 99% sure they're velvet.

Named after the chazon ish?


Kind of. The family would never have heard of the chazon ish- let alone his real name. The two names are family ones, a family friend, who for sure would have known, suggested how they be put together.

They don't have to match, but they shouldn't clash...
Besides, doesn't EVERYONE have 770 on their talis bag anyway??? :unsure:

I think when we got married the 770 was like double the price and I was being cheapeconomical.
They have since come down in price and are on par with other zeklach.

I wonder how much extra it cost for yechi

I have a velvet tefillin bag now, when I get married I want the suede/leather deal for my tallis, and I'm going to want a new tefillin bag to match.

Is that a real Yiddish word for those bags?
