Putting Tefilin chabad vs Sepharadic

Rabbi Ari Shvat

Kislev 28, 5781
Question
I m Sephardic from my father who has passed away when I was two. I always felt Sephardic. But I really started to become religious thanks to a Chabad rabbi and I started to put tefillin daily after a Chabad rabbi showed me how to put it. I kept the tradition to put Chabad way. I used to go to a Chabad house but I moved and started going to a Sephardic shul now and the rabbi told me I should put the tefillin the Sephardic way as I’m sepharad. What do you think?
Answer
You should wrap the tefilin the sefaradic way, but there's no need to acquire new tefilin.
