Words on the parochet


If the parochet (curtain in front of the Ark in a synagogue) has words written on it, and opening the parochet will cause the words to be split, but there is no physical joining of the letters, then one may open the parochet on Shabbat.

This is not ideal, though; it would be better for the two sides to be separated before Shabbat.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 4:40:22)

Have a great day,
