The Bottom Line...
We are pleased to introduce to you a breakthrough
the mitzvah of writing a Sefer Torah. Please follow through the
to the left to find out more on this incredible innovation
Sefer Torahs of the 20th Century
- Until now, when a person or a Shul would look into buying a
Torah, it was a long arduous journey. First, prominent “Soferim”
would be interviewed, to find just the right person for the job.
Sofer has a different handwriting, and the purchaser has his own
The process usually takes at least a year, with many
along the way.
- The Torahs vary in price from about $30,000.00 to over
This is clearly out of the reach of most private people and even
shuls. The one who buys the $30,000 Sefer must be prepared to
with a much lesser quality Sefer than the $60,000 one.
Teffilen & Mezuzot are also priced very high. The average “Baal
has a very difficult time accepting these prices, and it
will affect their decision to join the faith.
- Unfortunately, many of our aged Sifrei Torah have brown
and even missing or cracked letters and words from years of use.
too often, we disrupt our Torah reading due to corrections
When the prices are so high, we have no choice but to use any
every Sefer Torah available.

Sefer Torahs by Silk Screening
A new process was created to tackle an old problem. The Sofer
by purchasing some of the highest quality “Klaf” (parchment). The
is checked, tested, and cut to size. The “Sirtut” (engraved lines)
scored to the exact depth, thickness, height, and length. Silk
are created with the exact lettering. Computers are utilized to
a perfectly balanced page using proportionate letters. No need for
or squished letters to reach the end of the line. The screens are
on top of the Klaf in an exact position to meet the Sirtut. The
then puts ink on the screen, and applies the ink by hand passing a
across the Klaf. In a matter of seconds this Klaf has a full page
perfectly. The page is then dried. After the pages are all

This project is completely under
the auspices of Rabbi Yitzchak Abadi, originally of Lakewood, NJ and currently
living in Har Nof, Jerusalem, Israel. Rabbi Abadi was the Posek in Lakewood
for years and many of his students are Rabbis across the globe. The Rav
has thoroughly reviewed every aspect of this process and declared it Kosher
for “Mehadrin Min Hamehadrin.” The ability to control the perfection of
the writing makes it a better choice than conventional Sifrei Torah. Many
prominent Rabbis were consulted and were thrilled with the idea. When
they were able to view an actual sample they agreed to the high quality
and the Kashrut of this type of Sefer Torah. All writing will be done
by hand by a prominent Rabbi and Sofer.
