This font is commonly used in seforim published by Kehot Publication Society. I've seen it used in other places as well, but I've been unable to identify it. I really don't think it's a custom font....

So I'm hoping that someone can identify the font for the words "Likutei Torah". Thanks!

    This doesn't seem on topic. – Double AA Oct 9 '13 at 4:10
  • Have you tried calling Kehot? I once wanted to know the name of the font used in a certain ArtScroll book, so called ArtScroll, asked for Sheah Brander (listed as the art designer, or some such, of that book), and asked him. He remembered without having to check. – msh210 Oct 9 '13 at 4:11

    Very similar: judaism.stackexchange.com/q/5879. – msh210 Oct 9 '13 at 4:12
  • Those fonts from Davka do bear a strong resemblance. – Shmuli Oct 9 '13 at 4:21
  • I meant that the question, not the font, is similar. – msh210 Oct 9 '13 at 4:24

According to a couple of graphic designers in a graphic design group I'm in, the font is called קהת and was likely custom-made for the Kehot company (hence the name), and as such, probably isn't available anywhere else. See here and here for short discussions of Chabad fonts.

Note: A few font designers have made similar fonts. For example, Tamir Pomerantz made פורמלין (see here, scroll left):

The Lamed isn't the same, but the "legs" of the letters are similar (comp. to this).
