Sefer Torah on Simchat Torah

15.09.19

Question

Shalom Rabbi,

Can you use a replica sefer torah for Simchat Torah, when your congregation cannot afford a klaf Torah?

 

Answer

To the questioner, 

A child may dance on Simchat Torah with a replica Sefer Torah. 

However, reading of the Torah portions on Simchat Torah may be done only with a Sefer Torah written on klaf. 

With blessings, 
Hidabroot
