    It is wrong to do business with the Torah.

    I cant believe 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

    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!

    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,

    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!

    NU, WOT HAPPEN?

    HU BOUGHT THE TORAH? FOR HOW MUCH? IF IT DID’T SELL I WANT TO CHIP IN AND BUY IT. HOW CAN YOU TELL IT’S ON DEER SKIN, I HAVE ONE THAT LOOKS LIKE IT, BUT I CANNOT TELL PRECISELY.

    I have one I want to sell
