# Some pious individuals have the minhag of checking their [[Tefillin]] and [[Mezuzot]] during [[Elul]].<ref>Mateh Efraim 581:10 writes that as part of being introspective during [[Elul]], some pious individuals check their [[Tefillin]] and [[Mezuzot]] during [[Elul]]. He concludes that it is a good minhag. This is quoted by the Kitzur S”A 128:3, Chazon Ovadyah (p. 26), and Yalkut Yosef Moadim page 18. Also see Yechave Daat 1:49. It is noteworthy that S”A 39:10 rules that [[Tefillin]] that were established as being kosher do not have to be checked if they are used frequently. Additionally, S”A Y.D. 291:1 rules that [[Mezuzot]] should be checked twice every seven years. see also [http Daily Halacha by /6 Rabbi Eli Mansour's Daily Halacha] and [ Rabbi Aryeh Lebowitz ]</ref>
