I have heard that it is common these days for digitized images to be made when a Sefer Torah is written, though we don't have any such images at the shul I attend.

Having yet to find a tikkun that prepares me for the "visual-spatial" challenges I'm sometimes encountering when I lein in shul, a repository of real images seems like it would be most helpful for preparing myself for the diversity I can expect to encounter. Where would I find such repositories or other useful sources?

  • @Shokhet Thank you for that reference, but I am asking a different question. A machine-readable version might also make use of digitized images, but my question is specific to digitized images and their "human-readability". – lionel Aug 31 '14 at 22:30
  • @NoachmiFrankfurt That is interesting, and worth remembering on a trip to NYC or Israel. I didn't gather that these are available in digitized form, let alone for convenient everyday use. – lionel Aug 31 '14 at 23:30

    I'm pretty sure the digitized images are used for fingerprinting and identifying the Sifrei Torah, not for reading. vosizneias.com/54312/2010/04/29/… -- Although the Star-K does say that all Torah Scrolls certified by them are scanned, archived, and accessible, so you might be able to get access to them: zichronolam.com/Certification.aspx – Menachem Sep 1 '14 at 1:08
