Question:

There is a beautiful Sefer in a nursing home in west orange, NJ, where I once lived. It needs a lot of work. My question is: does a sofer use his own Mesorah or does he try to mimic the original sofer? This Sefer has many extra tagim, sometimes multiple rows of tagim and a lot of unusual letters that I have seen in safrus seforim (the spiral pe, the inverted nun Sofit in Charan, etc.) it would be a shame to erase the work and beauty of the prior sofer.

Answers:

  • if the work needed to be done, is to add ink on the letters a Sofer wont change the way it was written
