Halacha - Tefillin
Submitted by Dovid  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

The Gemorra says that the paint used to color the tefillin must be Kosher to eat. Since it is impossible to know the source of the ingredients in a regular magic marker, it is strongly advisable to use the "tefillin marker". You should remember to speak out loud "lesheim mitzvas tefillin" when using it.
