Tefilla Halacha

When performing gelilah:

  • The sefer Torah should be closed at a point where 2 pieces of parchment are sewn together.
  • The sefer Torah should be closed tightly.
  • One should not touch the parchment with bare hands. If the parchment droops, it should be tightened by grasping it with a tallis or the cloth.
  • The Bereishis side should be higher than the Devarim side.
  • The sash should be knotted or closed on the front side of the sefer, to facilitate its opening when the Torah is next used.

Tefilla Halacha

Machatzis HaShekel writes (in OC siman 68) that the pesukim preceding each selichah were picked b’ru’ach hakodesh and in fact form the basis for the upcoming selichah. Thus, one should say them slowly and carefully.
