Elevating the Torah [Hagbah]


The person who raises the Torah for all to see should make sure that a seam (joining parchment sheets) is centered between the two rollers. This ensures that if the scroll should tear, the tear would cause the least damage and be easily repaired.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 147:3)

Have a great day,
