Checking a Sefer Torah

What is the going rate for checking a Sefer Torah? Specifically a Sefer Torah that is generally in decent condition but with a lot of fading Tagin and occasional broken letters. Thanks.


  1. For a sefer that does not require major repairs, I charge between $500 to $1000, depending on what has to be done.

    However once it is old and has "jumping" or faded sections, I go by the hour and cap it at a max amount, and tell the client that it will not exceed that amount.

    However if it is extensive repair it may be cheaper to send it off to a reliable repairer, as the price of labour in E"Y is lower. I have 2 or 3 such people who do an excellent job at reasonable prices.
