“BE POSITIVE!
They usually sell to museums or some type of collector to publicly display, thereby making a huge Kiddush Hashem. With the money, they are able to further their studies and other guta inyanim!”

ARE YOU INSANE?

the torah is meant to be read! fix it, if not possible at leaste keep it in an Aron Kodesh! It’s awfull for the Torah to be in a museum or some collecter’s object on display! chas v’shalom!

i wonder if “petzuah dako” is spelled with a aleph (as is brought down in hayom yom etc. is the way it is supposed to be) or with a hei like most of the world spells it,

I cant believe that such an ehrliche rabbi will sell such a scroll (even though not kosher) where it can fall in to the hands of any one. Mamosh Bizui Kodshim

It is wrong to do business with the Torah.
