    ***

    In light of the Mezuzah video that is going around, we at Merkaz Stam would like to let you know that every Mezuzah that we sell is first checked over by a Sofer beforehand.

    Unfortunately, mistakes can happen. We are recommitting to be extra vigilant with our inexpensive (Mivtzoim) Mezuzuos and only give our customers the highest standards that you expected and trusted us with for over 40 years.

    1. Mistakes do happen however , not on mezuzos, fire the sofer who checked your tefilin & mezuzos!

      Tznius
    2. Wait, if you really check every single mezuzah, then no mistakes should happen only lack of hiddur. From the video it seems like mezuzahs were sold which either needed significant fixing or not kosher at all.

    3. Your ignorance shines.

      to MM Levi
    4. Anyone who wants to find probloms can find probloms. Why do people even care what some random sofer in Chicago says? Not even lubavitch. Why are there no mikoros on the video? (The answer is that most things they take for granted that are pasul – cracks etc, are not pasol!!!!!!!!)

      Brains
    5. You might as well throw the whole shulchan aruch out the window
      It’s Halacha moshe misinay that if a letter is not golam echad (one piece totally connected) or if two letters are toching or even two parts of a letter it’s pasul. It says in the pasuk uchsavtam chazal translate it to ksav tam that every letter must be complete. Tagim are also Halacha moshe Misinay. And the alter rebbe paskins exactly that, along with all other poskim from shas to rishonim to acharonim etc
      The stores that sell the junky Mezuzas (otherwise reffered to as shaymes) have to live with the fact that thousands of people could be making brochos levatolo on a daily basis because of their unprofessionalism.

      Boruch hashem someone is finally dealing with it. !!!!!

      Moshiach now

      answer to brains
    6. Defending brains.
      Read biur halacha siman 32 siif 25, about small cracks. shulchan aruch alter rebbe siman 36 siif 1, 2 about the letter alef and daled.
      The sofer who checked the mezuzos does not know halacha.

      Sofer
    7. The Rebbe said to buy from the Sofer not from dealers in a yechidus to Dovid Raskin

      Whatever
    8. so why is there a raskin who sells

      funny
