My Nephew’s Bar Mitzvah Gift: Needlepoint

A Needlepointed Tefillin Bag

This is my nephew’s gorgeous tefillin bag.  He celebrated his Bar Mitzvah a few months ago.  He visited our website, Judaica Needlepoint, and chose a design he liked.  His maternal grandmother offered to stitch it for him.  We supplied the canvas and threads as a birthday gift.  Mazal Tov! Keep us proud!

  1. This is magnificent!
    I’ve noticed the trendy, up-to-date style of tefillin bags when purchasing for my own boys. This one is a modern masterpiece that he is sure to treasure for years to come.

  2. This bag is a work of art –
    So meaningful for Bar Mitvah boy to keep his tefillin in a hand made tefillin bag!

  3. Dov really enjoyed picking out his own design for his tefillin bag. It was unique and beautiful, and especially meaningful because it was made by his grandmother and aunt. Everyone that sees it comments on Dov’s one-of-a-kind tefillin bag, and it added so much to his Bar Mitzvah experience. Thank you!

  4. Wow! What a beautiful and original gift idea! Is this something that can be ordered? How much time is needed to complete such a project? Can I also ask what the approximate cost would be to order something like this for a future Bar Mitzvah gift? Much continued success!
