Look at the “SHIN” on the hand. That is Minhag Ashkenaz and the Litvish way of putting on Tefillin.
Did he really meet chabad? SInce when does chabad wrap Tefillin on someone Nusach Ashkenaz? Something seems fishy with this article.

You can easily grow up a proud “Conservative/Reform” Jew in America and never have even heard of Tefillin. From strength to strength for Mark ( Moshe?) Levin IYH.

Its probably not his first time. Looks like it was wrapped by someone who knows what hes doing. Its not the chabad minhag either, maybe he put it on himself.

Skeptical!

Another point is that chabad have bigger Batim and this one looks the standard size.

Many non-Lubavitchers get into the act at the Kotel and also help people put on Teffilin.

Most likely meant to say the first time he had a picture taken with tfilin on at the kotel…. on that day

Just awesome now someone has to get em on his compadre in talk radio Michael Savage. Mark Levin worked under our second best president we ever had next to Trump, Ronald Reagan. He looiks so happy and loving the mitzvah. Maybe someone in VA who knows him can get him set. Soon he should be wearing Rabenu Tam 🙂

This is a general chasidisher minhag

He’s a very proud Jew.
I’m a bit skeptical if it’s his “first time”, he’s probably put on tefilin before
