Errors in Sifrei Torah, continued


If an error is found in a Torah during an aliyah on Shabbat morning, after 2 sentences have been read, then the reader stops, a new scroll is brought out, and we continue reading until the closest eligible paragraph break.

If the reading is from a special maftir aliyah, one reads from the new Torah until the end of that maftir aliyah.

(This os Mishneh Berurah 143:13; note that Aruch haShulchan Yoreh Deah 279:5 disagrees on the first paragraph above, ruling that we read additional pesukim in the previous Torah until we reach an acceptable stop, then recite the closing berachah.)

Have a great day,
