Torah Scroll

Each handwritten Torah scroll contains the full text of the Pentateuch. The entire text contains 304,805 Hebrew letters and divided to 669 paragraphs. It must be written by a qualified scribe on separate lined sheets of kosher parchment. Then they are sewn into a very long scroll. Such work takes approximately one year.
