The parts of the batim
The batim of Tefillin are composed of three main parts: the ketzitzah, the titora, and the ma`barta(see the illustration).

The ketzitzah:
the square upper part of the batim into which the Torah passages are placed.

The titora:
the part underneath the ketzitzah that extends from it. This is the part that comes into contact with the head or arm of the worshiper.

The ma`barta:
the part that protrudes from the square of the titora. A hollow channel runs the length of the ma`barta, through which the strap is passed (mu`avar), thus giving it its name.
