{{Torah portion}}[edit]

{{Torah portion}} does not belong on this page; it's irrelevant (and too long btw).—msh210 19:10, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

  • Hi msh: (1) The Tikkun (book) is the unique "book" that is used to prepare for the cantillation of the weekly Torah reading of the Parsha (Torah portion) on Shabbat in synagogue. It is the "tool" that a ba'al koreh ("Torah reader") uses to familiarize himself with that week's Torah portion. (2) The template {{Torah portion}} is at the bottom of the Tikkun (book) article's page, so essentially it's part of the "See also" section which is a legitimate way of connecting related and connected topics on an article. (3) If a reader finds the {{Torah portion}} to be "too intrusive" then any reader is free to click "Hide" on the top right section of the template's heading which shrinks it to an unobtrusive one liner. Finally, (4) the {{Torah portion}} is presently diligently updated weekly by User:Dauster early each Sunday so that any readers may learn more about the weekly Parsha. User:Dauster summarizes each week's Parsha and adds some interesting graphics which surely adds life and color to a page that may gain the attention of readers who don't know much about this subject and may want to learn more. Please refer all further comments and discussions to one centralized location at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Judaism#Template: Torah portion Thank you. IZAK 07:35, 4 July 2006 (UTC)


I'm not sure how much the difference is known today. What I have at home (which I will hopefully photograph soon) is called a Tikkun Soferim, but it sounds a combenation of the two. It has " two renditions of the masoretic text in Hebrew", but also "contains additional information of use to scribes, such as directions concerning writing particular words, traditions of calligraphic ornamentation" --SuperJew (talk) 11:23, 1 May 2009 (UTC)
