Special Features

Everlasting Ink

MachonStam has introduced a complete line of exclusive STa”M written with flexible, non-cracking, water resistant ink which, in addition to the many halachic benefits, makes it possible for scrolls written with this exceptional oshon* ink to last more than a lifetime!

This special ink contains no acids, which means that the ink will not discolor or crack with age. It is crafted with a superb adhesive that makes the ink stick to the klaf exceptionally well yet won’t absorb into the klaf, permitting a clean removal of ink when required. This unique phenomenon is stated as a requirement in halachah, [ein rishumo nikar,] which is not found in contemporary inks used for writing STa”M.

*Oshon ink is an ink into which a black ash carbon has been added to make it blacker and more mehudar.

This service may be valuable to many, as unclear situations in placement commonly arise in which it is possible that a person may not be fulfilling the mitzvah of mezuzah.
