Head Lost in Space

saw this in an old sefer torah today during the laining for תענית אסתר: the rosh of the lamed from "ולישראל" generously protrudes into the חלל of the ך from "אפך" would love to hear everyone's point of view on whether this is kosher or the opposite - and especially would love to know what r' moshe weiner and r'shammai say on a tangential note: r' moshe and rav shammai: where/when are your hours for hora'ah in yerushalayim? it would be a privilege for me to meet you in person... may everyone who contributes or reads this blog be inscribed in the book of purim along with all of klal yisrael. and for everyone outside the holy city and the holy land - please come home soon!

Hand written Ketubah

If anyone writes kesubas and is interested in writing one for someone from my shul, Knesset Israel. I live in Los Angeles. Thank you

Dalet pasul

I think this Dalet is pasul, and there is no place for a shaylas tinok. It is actualy a Reish (although pasul for a reish also) with a oketz stuck to the upper part of its foot. The basic structure of the letter reads it a reish.
