•Torah Evaluation: This service establishes a benchmark on the overall condition of the scroll and what work, if any, is necessary. This task takes about one hour per Sefer Torah and a detailed report is prepared. An evaluation is especially useful as a tool to set a long-term plan for the overall care of your scrolls. Those involved with the care of your Torahs are strongly encouraged to come & watch while we are evaluating, so they will come away with a whole new appreciation of their scroll as seen through the eyes of the Sofer. This then should be followed by a Holy Rollers training program. •Insurance Appraisals:After apprising the Torah by one of our certified scribes, an insurance approved appraisal document is prepared by a certified scribe and sent to you. This includes: all the necessary evaluations, measurements, digital photo & its location, list of secret-marks made on the scroll and age/origin/replacement value declarations. oIf evaluations and appraisals are performed simultaneously, then a discounted fee is offered for both services oUpdating existing appraisals: (Per document)oSilver appraisals •Torah Restoration:This is invoiced according to each scroll's individual quote, which is an estimate of how much time it should take to complete. Please be aware that a day of on-site work can be up to fifteen hours of work and not merely an eight-hour day* It is possible to accomplish upwards of 18 hours of work when necessary.•Education Presentations:Lectures, Programs, Classes and Workshops are offered on various levels of knowledge and ages. From large and grand entertaining school or family presentations to personal interactive and hands-on activities. Our Sofrim are Master storytellers and educators enlightening all audiences in the love of Torah. Ask for details on our educational component presentations. (Minimum 2 hours)•Holy Rollers:A very unique Torah Care Training Program. An informative yet fascinating lecture/workshop on Torah making, history and proactive care. The overall goal of this training is to have a group of congregants become knowledgeable and capable to take regular care of your scrolls. This will save you thousands of dollars by improving the condition of your Torah and by preventing possible damage as a result of the lack of care. This develops into an interactive Torah Maintenance Program where we come for a visit according to your awareness of the needs of each of your Torah scrolls, only which we have trained you to notice and have also trained you how to keep the cost down to a minimum.•Torah Maintenance:This is offered for only for a scroll which Sofer On Site has restored in the past two years. Beyond this time it may cost more, especially if you haven't initiated & trained a Holy Rollers Group to maintain your scrolls. With an active HR Group in place, chances are very good it may be less.•MST 5 Year Condition Report:The Memorial Scrolls Trust stipulates that every Synagogue produce once every 5-years, a condition report, which includes an insurance appraisal. The insurance document is only done once - follow up condition reports are additional. For those who are in charge for the care of this scroll, it is highly recommended to come during the evaluation, not only for the incredible experience of what this scroll will tell you about itself, but to be given tips and techniques on how best to care for these types of historic Torahs.Specialty Items:
