Is there any requirement regarding the type of material a tefillin bag (or tallis bag) can be made from? Can leather be used and if so, does it matter if the leather came from a kosher or non-kosher animal (crocodile, snake etc.)?


There are laws regarding the material that the tefillin and it’s straps must be made from, but the tefillin bag can be made of the leather of a non kosher animal.

Best Wishes

  1. There is a slight implication that the bag should be made of leather, just it need not be from a kosher animal, and surely that was not the intention.

    • You are right, it can be made of any material.I was just referring to the persons question
