Sefer Torah with very tight ksav

Sholom uvrocho,
I wanted to ask about the following Torah.
Please see picture below.

Did you see anything like that?


  1. Reb Aharon, pasul because of tight words or because of Lamed and Hei or because of both? Could you please point me to Halachos on this?

    1. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

    2. Primarily because in many cases the words are so close together that if they were supposed to be one word, it would be kosher.

      Thank you, Rabbi Levin, for your Chizuk toward learning Shulchan Aruch.

    3. Very nice and intelligent סברא.

      However I'm sorry that in the code of Jewish law there's no such פסול.

    4. אורח חיים ל"ב ל"ב:
      וצריך להניח בין כל תיבה ותיבה כמלא אות, וכן בין השיטים כמלא שיטה, ובין כל אות כמלא חוט השערה, כמו בס"ת.

      משנה ברורה שם קמג - אות קטנה שהוא יו"ד, ובדיעבד אין לפסול אלא אם כן נראית כתיבה אחת לתינוק

      יורה דעה רע"ד ד

      ויהיה בין תיבה לתיבה כמלא אות קטנה, ולא יקרבם ביותר שלא יהיה שתי תיבות נראות כאחת. ואם שינה, שהרחיק בין האותיות עד שהתיבה נראית כשתים, או שקירב שתי תיבות עד שנראות כאחת, פסול

    5. Thank you,
      See also ט"ז there.

      So we see, that we can not פסל based on our calculated measurement.

      Rather, it's judged by the way it actually appears to be read.

      And to be pointed out,
      The accuracy and experty of this Sofer, that his spacing between words are always more than between the rest of his letters.

    6. Thank you Reb Aharon and Reb Yisroel.
      I still have a question regarding short ל and ה

  2. Thank you Reb Aharon and Reb Yisroel.
    I still have a question regarding short ל and ה.

    Any opinions on these?

  3. The story of this Torah has a continuation.
    Rav Greenfeld שליטה said not to use this Torah, it is written by שייגעץ.

    Any information regarding this will be greatly appreciated.
