What significance or symbolism, if any, is there if a person sees a torah scroll fall to the floor in a dream?

    Are you looking for dream interpretation? I think it's anyone's guess, really. Did you do hatavat chalom the next morning? – ezra Apr 8 '18 at 17:21
  • @DoubleAA That talks about dreaming of a burning sefer torah, not one that falls. It also talks about whether one can fast for a bad dream on shabbos. I do not think that citation answers the question. – sabbahillel Apr 8 '18 at 17:25

    @ezra there is a perek in shas dedicated to dream interpretation, it's anyone's guess, really. – heshy Apr 8 '18 at 17:36

See Magen Avraham OHC 288/6 quotes the Sefer Magid Mesharim (Vayakhel) which states that the Beis Yosef was told by the "Maggid" that he was correct in ruling that only 3 dreams allowed fasting on Shabbos, [one being one who dreams that a Sefer Torah was burned], but one who dreams of a Sefer Torah falling on Shabbos should not fast then.

Rabbi Tzvi Hirsh Berliner in his Sefer Kol Hatorah deduces from this that during the week one must fast when dreaming about a Sefer Torah falling. [http://beta.hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=48972&pgnum=8]
