If the sefer torah is disqualified at the end of the reading


As a general rule, if a disqualification is found in a sefer torah during the Torah reading, one continues the reading with a new sefer torah, but one does not go back to that which has already been read.

If the disqualification is found after the entire reading is completed, one does not go back. Some authorities suggest that the congregation may take out a new Torah and read without blessings, but others disagree due to concern for the honour of the Torah scroll.

(Rivivot Ephraim 1:210)

Have a great day,
