Its important to note that most sofrim are not qualified to teach hagohah (checking), to learn checking you need to learn a lot more than ksivah (writing) and do a lot of Shimush (vaad Mishmeres stam recommends 3 years).

#1. Fitz’s Ksav is absolutely stunning!
#2. Presently, the industry is replete with ambiguity, and sorely lacks integrity and transparency. Yasher Koach for the opportunity to be educated!

Sooo special. Somthing Sooo important . This generation sadly is unaware of the importance of the mezuza, sthing that protects our beautiful home.
