Horada Mekidusha

Are there poskim that permit shaving off the bottom of a Sefer Torah that is full of rips, in order to make it look nicer? I've seen it done and can't find a Matir.


  1. I'd think there'd not be a heter to trim for the sake of appearance and if there's concern of further tearing, it can be fixed by patching.

  2. I've heard that too, but I can't find it in print or any name who said it. Reb Menashe Klien has a long tishuva assering.
