Fasting when a Torah falls


The practice of fasting when a Sefer Torah falls to the ground is subject to significant debate. In practice, all who are present should fast, even if it fell due to circumstances beyond anyone's control.

There is room to be lenient if part of the Torah remains in one's hand, although it would be appropriate to fast.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 3:3)

Have a great day,
