What happened to the price of STa"M????
As I'm sure all in the business know, the price of Sifrei Torah, Tefillin and Mezuzos have gone up lately.
Furthermore there is a big shortage of items available and sofrim are getting offered more money by desperate wholesalers and retailers who do not have enough stock to meet their demand.
Below is a link to an excellent article from a Chabad news website that really explains whats going on in layman's terms.
I found this article useful to forward to balebatim and customers who were upset or querying the increase in prices.
