Writing or Buying a Sefer Torah


One fulfills the mitzvah of writing a sefer torah by purchasing one that has been written.

There are those who criticize this route because one takes advantage of work that others have done, but generally these sifrei torah do need some repair, and therefore that is not a concern.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Yoreh Deah 1:163)

Have a great day,
