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.
Yikes. The gug is longer than the regel. No way to fix. The most lenient opinions who are macshir (with shailos tinok) are when they are even or regel slightly longer (provided of course the regel goes down lower like a chof pshutah)
pasul gamur! I also seriously question if this sofer can be relied upon as it's a blatant and obvious psul
We have examples of STaM from the times of the Rishonim where the Sofer stretched a final kaf. Apparently they considered it kosher as long as the regel went obviously below the line. In any case nowadays we would definitely not accept this.
The bigger question I always have when I see things like this is that it shows clearly that the sofer is an am haaretz, so how can we trust that he wrote anything k'halacha.
No idea, why my things keep posting in duplicate or triplicate. But I apologize.
