Last Adar II, a mehudar Sefer Torah was donated to the Sanz Beis Medrash in Netanya, and during Shavuos, the Sefer was learned to be pasul as some letters were written in the incorrect order.
Thousands of chassidim took part in the hachnasas Sefer Torah in on 21 Adar II marking 65 years from the placement of the cornerstone in the beis medrash in Netanya by the Shefa Chaim of Sanz ZT”L.
Thousands of chassidim participated in the writing of the mehudar Sefer Torah as they bought letters to mark the occasion in memory of the Rebbe ZT”L, and in honor of the Rebbe Shlita, who completed the Sefer and placed it is the Aron Kodesh in the beis medrash.
At the same time, two new Aronei Kodesh were dedicated – with one in the Rebbe’s Beis Medrash where the Sefer Torah was brought and the second, in the large Heichal, Heichal Rosenberg.
While they were reading on Shavuos, it was discovered the sefer was pasul as baal korei R’ Meir Letzner realized some of the letters were reversed. Instead of saying ‘שלשים ומאה משקלה’, it said ‘שלשים ואמה משקלה’.
The Sefer was placed back in the Aron Kodesh, another taken out and the laining was completed. The Sefer Torah will now be checked in its entirety before it is brought back to the beis medrash.
