Different customs in writing Sefer Torah, Tefillin and Mezuzah


One may use a sefer torah, mezuzah or set of tefillin which was written in accordance with a custom that is not the norm in a particular community. This is not ideal, but since the differences are known only to scribes, this would not be considered a violation of communal custom.

Certainly, we do not rule a particular custom to be 'invalid', where it is one of the traditional types of script.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 5:2)

Have a great day,
