A segurança de nossos irmãos no Rio de Janeiro fica cada dia mais preocupante. BH recuperaram este rolo de Haftarot, mas sera que conseguiram recuperar também a tranquilidade de se viver em paz ?

It is the minhag in many Sfardi communities that the Haftorah is read from a SCROLL written by a SOFER, albeit with taamei hamikrah (as can partially be seen by the photos in the articles). Certainly it does not hold the same sanctity as a Torah scroll, but the difference was hinted to in the article.

This Scroll of Haftorot is printed on paper with Nekudos and Taamim and is not written on parchment or by a Sofer.

Indeed, a holy object and a bit costly, but not to be confused for a Torah scroll

Makes sense
