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.
The reish is a shaylas tinok, and if read reish must be fixed by adding dyo.The tav to my opinion is pasul.
22 years ago I had this same type of Tav in my own Tefillin and I changed the Parsha but It was sent to Sampson in London who was Machshir and added a little ink on the back of the right regel and very slightly made the bottom of the rosh 1/2mm thicker.Looking at this picture again and again I can see that both raglayim are not coming out of the same spot and there is a small revach.Based upon my experience I would be Noiteh to pass it as okay.It has no other Tzurah other then a Tav.I am not a Moreh Horaah and would still send this in for Top level advice.Just sharing my own story.
"It has no other Tzurah other then a Tav."To me it looks like a Tzadi Hafucha.
you would never pass this tzurah as a Tzadi!!!!I was only passing on my own past experience.If you add a little ink to the kav of the right regel you would not have such an odd looking Tav. It is only because the bottom has a Blita that it looks funny.I am not convinced this is a Pusul Tav.I would like to see the leading letters of this word or better the whole item. Looks like (Beitoi)
tav with 2 feet bent:on can argue this is similar to the ches of vechara and the mikdash meat feels that its similar to tav-I wouls agree that tinok can help ,however including the point on the inside It seems like a real shunui tzura
Reish is a shailos tinnok. R' Shammai would say the same lifi what I've seen by him in the past. This is what the Mikdash Ma'at already says is a shailos tinnok.The Tav I personally am in sofek if it's a shailos tinnok or pasul. I'm more noteh to say it's a shailos tinnok. Again lifi what I was makabel from R' Shammai in similar shailos (that it's a shailos tinnok.) He said it becomes more of a problem of the 2 legs come mamash to a point together at the gag (in the middle or if one one regel is all the way to the right and the other regel is slanted meeting it at a point.) Here you see you don't have that and there is a little bit of space in between. Leaving me to believe he would also say it's a shailos tinnok.
Perhaps somebody here can draw the correct steps of correcting this reish with ink!
start from the bottom - dont dare do it from the top !!!!!
if you did it from the top in one movement it should still be kosher according to some opinions
