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.
