The Sofer

The most essential element of any written parchment is thesofer. In addition to his individual integrity —being G-d-fearing and conscientious — it is imperative that thesofer is tested thoroughly and receives ksav kabbalah— certification from a reliable Rabbinic authority, ensuring that he knows the many detailed and complex laws of STa”M. This is of utmost importance because a sofer who is not completely fluent in the halochos of safrus could innocently and unknowingly invalidate a mezuzah or tefillin without anyone’s, even his, knowledge. When purchasing an item from a sofer with a reliable Rabbinic certification, the consumer can rest assured that his or her STa”M conforms strictly to all the laws and details of Shulchan Aruch,and all the customs of the different ksavim.
