Gentile Assisting Putting on Tefillin

Is a non Jew allowed to put on Tfillin for a handicapped person.


Yes, he may put them on, and the handicapped person can make the bracha. If possible he should assist somewhat in the donning of the tefillin.

  1. You have to make sure that the tefillin are being put on in the halachically correct manner (above the hairline, etc.).
