One of our PhD students gave me a link to an interesting website concerning the making of a modern Torah scroll. There is a video and news article from The Dallas Morning News which explains the making of the scroll. According to the article it will take Rabbi Bloomenstiel 18 months to complete the entire Torah. Those who are interested may sponsor a day of the sofer’s writing for $180.00! Reporter Scott Farwell writes that a scroll would cost a congregation between $25,000 and $75,000!
