Everyone knows that Sephardics and Ashkenazis wrap tefillin differently. But how did/do Romaniotes (from parts of Greece, mainly Ioannina) wrap it?

    I assume you're referring to standing versus sitting while putting on the hand-tefillin, but can you edit to make that clearer?

    @Kazibácsi So basically they wrap tefillin like most Sepharadim.

    @ezra This is what I definitely see there, although I'm not an expert. You should also note that many Italian Jews are sefardim themselves (like Livorno, most of Venice). Unfortunately I can't ask my Roman friends now, but ב"נ I'll do later on. Aug 1, 2018 at 15:06

    @msh210 I actually assumed OP is asking about the wrapping on the hand.
