Mobile Tefillin Intensive Care Unit

Posted by Avital Pinnick on November 12, 2009

Mezuzah and Tefillin Van

Only in Israel.

You know the story. It’s time to have your mezuzot checked and you’re just too busy to take them to your local sofer (scribe). Fortunately, there’s a solution! Wait for the mobile tefillin intensive care unit to come to you.

This guy parks  his van outside synagogues, posts a huge sign announcing that he checks and sells mezuzot and tefillin, and waits for the men coming out of the morning service. The back of his van looks like a travelling hardware store.

I love the signs on the front of the van. The one on the right side  is a take-off on signs one sees on ambulances  (“Mobile intensive care unit for tefillin and mezuzot”). The sign on the left says “G-d’s Security Vehicle” (I presume the cellphone number is his local number).
