    New York taxi lost and found?

    About a year ago I lost a pair of Tefilin in a New York taxi. Does anyone know if they have a similar program?

    this is great!
    A good yid does a wonderful mitzvah and inspired another good yid…….
    THIS is what we are about .. this is what should be publicized
    mitzvos bring forth more mitzvos and ch’v the other way is NOT to be lauded.

    I’ve been there. Lots of lost luggage goes there and it’s all for resale. There were no tefillin the day I was there, but someone’s souvenir purchases from the Olive Wood factory in Israel. There’s one main (official) store, and then a bunch of small ones (claiming the same). The official one has a tiny museum of interesting things found i.e. shtreimel, shofar, movie props.

    how hard do the airlines try to find the owners? I’m sure all those who lost their tefillin submitted a report right away. Even if nobody can read Hebrew these are very distinctive items that should be easy to identify. How does it get shipped to Alabama to be resold without making every effort to find the owners?

    lost my tefillin

    I left my tefillin in a yellow taxi in nyc like 3-4 years ago and shortly after I got a new pair.
    The driver seemed ant semetic I didnt have medallion number and for a few months it wasnt at the l&f.
    The driver was an arab and I highly doubt its still in lost and found. Should i give up on finding it? any tips?
