Common Problems with Torah Scrolls
- Many times with regular use the parchment on the bottom and top and the seams between the sections could start to rip. Any rips found should be fixed before it expand into the writing and make the torah “Not Kosher” for use.
- Discoloration of the ink: Depends on the type of ink used to write the Torah after number of years the color of the ink can turn brown or light brown. A Sofer should be consulted in this case to determine if the color is still Kosher.
- Cracked and broken Letters: Depends on the type of parchment, ink and storage of the Torah the letters can start to crack and break. If you see broken letters in your Torah you will probably need the sofer to take the Torah and fix the problems and take the steps required to prevent the Torah from continuing cracking and breaking.
From our experience every torah should be inspected every 10 years to make sure the Torah is still kosher.
