Delivery Boy

That's me. And it's a fairly odd and valuable delivery - a Torah. I need to drop it off so that it can be repaired by a pro.

Torahs are tricky - even a small flaw, such as a single broken letter, can leave it unkosher and therefore not usable. It does make you appreciate how exacting Jews have been for the last 2000ish years.

If all goes well, in a few months this Torah will be kosher again and be put to good use.

    today thay have computer doing the checking so i shouldnt take long hopfully

  2. Good point. The Sofer (scribe) has already diagnosed the problems with the Torah, it's now time to get them fixed.

    And then, when it's all said and done, he'll probably run it through the computer one more time.
