Errors in Sifrei Torah


If a mistake is found in a Torah after the person called to the Torah has recited the opening berachah and before two sentences have been read, then a new Torah should be brought and used. If the rest of the Torah reading can be divided into seven readings (on Shabbat), this would be good to do.

(Mishneh Berurah 143:16)

The Mishneh Berurah (143:20) says no new berachah should be recited, assuming that the person called to the Torah has not interrupted in conversation with others. The Aruch haShulchan (Yoreh Deah 279:5) disagrees, ruling that a new opening berachah is required.

Have a great day,
