A place for English speaking sofrim (scribes), magihim (examiners), rabbis and vendors of Stam (Torah, Tefillin and Mezuzah scrolls) from around the world to communicate, share ideas, ask questions and offer support and advice.
1) For those who think they've seen it all. check out this tzadi from an old sefer Torah brought to me today. they were all like this!
2) A question for reb moshe: I had a pair of tefillin for checking today where the parsha of the vehoya im shemoah of the rosh was different to the rest of the ksav. while i see this often, my first impression was that it looked older than the other parshiyos. I have no way of knowing for certain and the tefillin were purchased from what is a reputable establishment in NY. Should i be concerned or just rely on the chazoka of the tefillin, and leave it?
