Behind the name tefillin.biz is a dedicated team fired by a dream - quality Tefillin and Mezuzah scrolls written in Israel, available to anyone living in any corner of the globe. The team is energized by Yeshivah graduate, Yosef Belz, known to everyone as Yossi, and his partner Uriel - "Call me Uri," he says.
They were one of the first to sell Judaica online in the year 2002. An accomplished scribe and a person who loves helping others, Yossi wanted to share his knowledge on the intricacies of his trade so he put up articles on-line, helping people make informed choices before they purchased parchment scrolls.
Seeing the marketing potential, he joined with Uri, a professional trained computer whiz, and formed Pe'er HaSTaM and its subsidiary company Tefillin.biz. Beginning with Kosher parchment scrolls, they soon branched out into other related fields of Judaica items. "The aim is an all-in-one approach," explains Yossi. "If someone is buying a Mezuzah, Tefillin or Megillah scroll, we offer him the opportunity to purchase a Tallit or Tefillin bag too. We have also included a fine selection of prayer shawls and other Judaica accessories."
Yossi was deeply disturbed - and still is - to see the many fraudulent Mezuzah, Tefillin and Megillah scrolls that are flooding the market. In an effort to overcome this trend, he insists on selling parchment scrolls that he has personally examined and can vouch for Kashrut and authenticity. To keep down costs and ensure quality control, he employs the scribes who write the scrolls.
"I have been working in this field for over 15 years. So, I know what it takes to write a fully Kosher parchment scroll. We offer our customers a full range of parchments from low-cost basic pashut to exclusive mehudar. To meet everyone's needs, there are scrolls suitable for the customs of every community - Sephardic, Yemenite, and Ashkenazi. We also offer a range of accessories that include Tallit and Tefillin bags and Tallitot. So, depending on your budget and life-style, you will find what you need on our website."
Tefillin.biz remains people-oriented. Yossi still enjoys talking to customers and replying to their emails. He and his knowledgeable marketing staff are available at all hours to deal with queries from their world-wide family of customers. Visit us online and see for yourself.
