A question that popped up:

As I was editing the other post, an important question popped up:  Are the organizations that give Ktav Kabbalah opened? (Vaad Mishmeres STaM/Yd Refael)  Anyone has any information on this?

Opinions?

 Excuse my inactivity, recently I have been trying to plan my trip to Yeshivah in Israel, and too much has been going on.  I around 3 weeks ago wrote this Pitum Haketoret, right before I tested positive for the coronavirus.  Baruch Hashem, there were no severe symptoms and I finally got cleared to fly out to Israel. I wanted to know if there is anything I should work on my Ktav, (especially since I will soon try to get my Ksav Kabbalah in Israel) Details: 8mm lines, written by a plastic kulmus (Not used to writing 8mm ktav) As always, thanks for the help! 

Is this a Joke or Broad daylight robbery?

This Video was surfacing social media, have no idea who this is, but was wondering if this a Joke or Broad daylight robbery?

Please Read: New members and authors

 Hi all. Shavua tov.  Over the next few months I will endeavor to make space to allow new members to join as authors on this forum.  As previously mentioned, there is a capacity for 100 authors (those who can comment and post questions) and an unlimited amount who can be members  (listed as a member on the forum). All members and authors can see all posts and comments.  Over the years we have received many requests to become authors but to date we have been full.  Authors should be posting/commenting at least once a month. This is to ensure those who have questions and thoughts are able to author posts.  As such, I will be removing the author status from those who have not posted or commented in the last few months. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO RETAIN YOUR AUTHOR STATUS AND PLAN ON COMMENTING/POSTING MORE OFTEN. Otherwise I will most likely make your status just as a member and therefore allow new members to join as an author.  If you have any questions please email me on d

Zvi Shkedi, 73, OBM

It is with great sadness that I heard about the recent passing of Zvi Shkedi, a member of this forum, who was the inventor of "Dyo Lonetzach", a revolutionary type of ink that is waterproof and does not crack or flake.  His many articles and discussions can be found on this forum by searching his name in the search bar on this page. Here is some info on his life and achievements, which can be found by clicking the link below. https://collive.com/zvi-shkedi-73-obm/ I hope his ink continues to be produced, as I have personally found that the Stam written with his ink are easier to check  - as there is no cracking or bruising apparent in the ksav, particularly  on the folds of the shel rosh in tefillin, which, when written with regular ink often need touch ups as they age (particularly if the tefillin are checked often). If anyone has any personal stories or further info about the production of Dyo Lonetzach, please feel free to post. Boruch Dayan Hoemes.
