Your sofer should know hilchos STA”M like a surgeon should know anatomy

Sifrei Torah, Tefillin and Mezuzos are essential articles in your life.

  • We read from the Torah in shul on Mondays, Thursdays, and Shabbos. 
  • We put on Tefillin every single weekday. 
  • We kiss the Mezuzos in our homes when we come and go.

Did you know?

STA”M is an acronym for Sifrei Torah, Tefillin, and Mezuzos – the three articles that a sofer writes.

Mezuzah with letters split

But the halachos of STA”M are some of the most intricate and complex of all Shulchan Aruch.

The slightest mistake or oversight – even a tiny crack in a letter! – can render these articles b’dieved (substandard) or possul (unusable).

Something so essential yet so complex requires attention and action.

It’s time to raise the standards of STA”M for the Jewish People.

Did you know?

A mezuzah has 713 letters. Every letter has tens of halachos that need to be kept in order for it to qualify as a kosher mezuzah.

That is why Vaad Meleches HaKodesh

  1. provides sofrim with a practical system to review the halachos of STA”M and
  2. publishes articles about safrus and halachos that are relevant even for non-Sofrim

The end result? Jews all over the globe have more access to kosher and mehudar Sifrei Torah, Tefillin and Mezuzos.

It just got easier to find mehudar STA”M

Under the guidance of Rav Moshe Shaul Klein shlit”a (one of the most prominent poskim in Eretz Yisroel today and the primary talmid of Rav Shmuel Wosner zt”l) Vaad Meleches HaKodesh is on a mission to provide sofrim with a practical system to review the halachos.

A sofer signs up for our Chazarah Program.

He reviews all of hilchos STA”M using our 4-month long daily study system.

He takes a written test every two weeks. He must receive a passing grade to remain in the program.

He now writes STA”M with in-depth, crystal-clear knowledge of the relevant halachos.

Every community. Every shul. Every home. Every Jew.

Every Jew should have access to kosher and mehudar Sifrei Torah, Tefillin and Mezuzos.

And every sofer should be highly qualified to provide these items.

With your help, more sofrim will become true experts in hilchos STA”M.

You can raise the standards of STA”M for our nation.
