Printing a Sefer Torah


A Sefer Torah may not be produced by photocopying for several reasons, including:

1. The Torah must be actively written; causing the print to appear is not the same as writing;

2. The Torah must be written with a special ink, which is not used in photography;

3. The Torah must have lines etched into the parchment below the text;

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 4:40:10)

Have a great day,
