Examine Your Torah Via Technology The   advent   of   the   computer   age   has   been   a   helpmate   to   today’s   Sofer. A   computer   check   can   identify problems   in   the   specific   Mesorah   (traditions)   relating   to   the   formatting   of   words   in   a   Sefer   Torah,   as well   as   letters   or   words   that   are   missing   or   unnecessary.   This   examination   process   does   not   replace the   need   for   human   expertise,   but   it   is   a   tremendous   tool   for   the   industry,   and   demonstrates   a   way   of how science, technology and Torah work together. Sofer   On   Site    has   for   many   years   been   using   this   technology   to   assist   in   Torah   examination.   We   are very   excited   to   be   able   to   provide   this   scanning   service   on   site   with   our   mobile   computer   lab   that   scans and   analyzes   each   Torah.   Within   a   few   hours   you   will   have   the   results   without   having   to   send   your Torahs away. Whether   during   Torah   reading   ,   examination   or   at   any   other   closer   look   at   the   script,   questions   arise about   the   script   accuracy,   then   a   computer   checking   is   warranted.   Its   the   “Three   strikes   and   your   out” policy:    should    more    then    three    accuracy    mistakes    be    found    in    a   Torah    scroll,    then    a    computer examination of the entire scroll is required. Please   note:   A   standard   eye   scanning   of   a   Torah   as   part   of   a   Torah   evaluation   does   not   examine   the script    for    missing,    added    or    substituted    letters,    nor    does    it    verify    the    shapes    of    letters,    or    if letters/words   are   written   too   close. This   type   of   extensive   examination   can   only   be   accomplished   with   a Computer   Checking   of   the   entire   scroll.   Sofer   On   Site    offers   this   service,   if   necessary,   only   on   a special   request.   A   full   computer   checking   of   a   Torah   takes   about   8   hours   for   the   scanning,   plus   1-4 days of reviewing and analyzing the scanning report. Additional fees apply in providing this service. Script   accuracy   problems   can   only   be   identified   and   verified   with   a   computer   scanning   of   the   entire scroll.   However,   such   a   scanning   can   only   be   efficiently   accomplished   after   the   scroll   has   been restored   (of   all   its   other   repair   needs,   otherwise   the   computer   scanning   will   pick   up   hundreds   if   not thousands of mistakes which will take weeks to analyze). You   may   request   a   computer   scanning   followed   by   an   examination   of   your   Torah   to   verify   its   condition as   they   relate   to   the   issues   above.   We   will   be   glad   to   schedule   an   appointment   for   you. There   are   extra fees associated with performing a computer scan and checking. If you have any question about Computer scanning and checking of a Torah, please give us a call.
