Show Notes

In this episode, we learn positive mitzvah #15, which is to write a Torah scroll.

There are several ways to fulfill this mitzva:

  1. One should actually write the Torah scroll. 
  2. Purchase a Torah scroll or hire someone to write it on your behalf
  3. To edit / fix a Torah scroll by correcting even one error
  4. Purchase Torah books, which will enable one to study Torah (positive #14)
    • This option is the opinion of Rabbenu Asher ("Rosh", c. 1250 - 1327)
