My son received a miniature Torah scroll as a reward in Hebrew school. The letters are not printed clearly and I cannot really read it well, but I would like to know if it should be accorded the respect usually given to a Sefer Torah. For what its worth, the writing is too smudged for me to find an instance of Hashem's name written on it. I'd like to hope they would use an abbreviation.
I put it on display in our china cabinet, is it now an Aron?
If I say Tachanun in that room, should I put my head down?
If it gets ripped, should it be buried or put into a genizah?
Or possibly, is it not a Sefer and can just be considered a decoration like a Mizrach?
If you think this is too specific (ask your LOR), please rephrase the question. I am not sure how to ask this in the abstract.
