What paint brush do you recommend for painting batim?

I haven't bought in years and one of my brushes is shedding lots of hairs. The brushes are hard to find in Israel and it would be much easier to order online while in the US.

phone hours for Rav M.S. Klein?

Does anyone have phone number and hours for Rav M.S. Klein?

long flexible needles for inserting chut bein habatim

Does anyone know what these needles are called? I want to order them online in bulk and don't know what to search for.

(Probably) non-Jewish super knows how to roll mezuzos better than "professionals" This story is really non-news. A building superintendent knowing how to nail something to the wall is not a big deal. Even knowing that a mezuza case has a scroll inside is unsurprising if there are a lot of Jews in the building who don't know that they need to hang the mezuzos themselves. The tragedy is that the Jewish tenant had no clue, and the "sofer" who sold her the mezuza couldn't even be bothered to roll the (probably passul) scroll correctly is really what struck me. I have always thought that the state of sta"m years ago, and to a lesser extent today, was due to a lack of education. It seems that people simply don't care , which is a much harder problem to deal with. I can see a Judaica store owner having no clue that a scroll is written incorrectly. I cannot fathom how he couldn't take 30 extra seconds to roll it neatly. That's not ignorance, that's

same sofer ????

I just cant figure out how this sofer operates

Sofer that doesn't say אתה חוננתני on motzsh"k

Would you buy Stam from a Sofer that doesn't say אתה חוננתני on motzsh"k-since you don"t have to redaven? Then why buy mezuzos when sofer doesnt make oketz on beis or bedek chaya?


I CANNOT FIGURE OUT WHAT CORRECTION WAS MADE HERE. (I called the sofer who said he made long lamed by mistake which cannot really be -however he writes very much and might not remember )
