I have an old copy of the old Ktav edition of "Tikkun LaKor'im, which was published in 1946.

It was printed using an copy of a hand-written Torah, of unknown provenance.

The problem with it, is that there is an ERROR [in the hand-written part] in Parshat Vayakhel (Shemot 35:11), where instead of "את קרסיו", it erroneously reads: "ואת קרסיו":

It seems that this edition is still available for purchase.

Does anyone know if the error was repaired in subsequent printings?

ADDENDA:

In the same edition (1946) I have found another ERROR [in the hand-written part] in Parshat Noach (Bereishis 8:4), where instead of "ותנח התבה", it erroneously reads: "ותנח תתבה".

Note: In the edition which is found on HebrewBooks.org, the error seems to have been corrected.

  • @IsraelReader BTW, I have a sofer friend, who scans Torah scrolls to spot errors. I don't think it's worth it, but that way you could check their text. [I'm collecting typos in the ArtScroll Stone chumash, but they didn't seem to care despite having a long list.] Mar 9 at 20:12
  • @Kazibácsi Scanning an entire Torah can be quite expensive. Meanwhile, I have done my share in helping people in correcting the mistake, in their own copies. Mar 9 at 20:20

The 1969 edition in my house also has that mistake.
