Where the Torah should be kept


When a Sefer Torah is not in use, including during Kriat haTorah [Torah reading] when there are two Sifrei Torah and one is not in use, it must be kept in a place which is protected, and which accords it honor.

Therefore, a Torah should not be put in a location where everyone can access it easily, or where children who don't understand how to demonstrate respect could touch it.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 1:38)

Have a great day,
