Toupees and Tefillin


A toupee which is detachable constitutes an interruption between the scalp and tefillin. Therefore, he should put on tefillin at home without the toupee and with a berachah, and put the head tefillin on at shul over the toupee without a berachah.

Foreign hair which cannot be removed does not constitute an interruption.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 4:40:18)

Have a great day,
