Subject:  RE:Torah
Message:  IS IT PERMISSIBLE TO TOUCH THE TORAH SCROLL WITH ONES BARE HANDS? I BELIEVE IN THE LAST PAGE OG GEMARA MESECHET MEGILAH IT STATES SEVERE CONSIQUENSES FOR DOING THAT. WHAT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO ? WHY DO YOU THINK MANY RABANIM ARE NOT VERY STRICT ON THIS ISSUE?

    
Reply: you should not touch-correct
ask them!!!
YA

Can I open an Aron Kodesh and touch the torah with my bare hands if it's enclosed in a covering?
Thanks



   
Reply:  touch the covering-yes, the Torah itself-no
YA
