Fallen tefillin

Question:

Hi Rabbi,
This morning, I dropped my tefillin from about waist height with the the plastic covering to the floor. I immediately picked it up and kissed it. In all my years of davening, this never happened. Do I need to do anything today?
Thank you

Answer:

Yes, but not necessarily today. The Mishna Berura (40-3) brings from the Eliyahu Rabba that if one’s tefillin falls even with the case on them, that the person should give a little bit of money to tzedakah.

Best Wishes
