Everyone is surely aware of the importance of checking Tefillin and Mezuzos especially in the month of Elul. However, after taking a look at the above Parsha - open story for enlarged view - we are struggling to figure out, why, when these same Tefillin were checked on previous occasions did the Sofer not find the mistakes.
We would hope, that notwithstanding the crush of work they are faced with during this busy time of year, our Sofrim are giving each Mezuza and ALL the Parshios in Tefillin the proper attention they deserve.
This should also serve as a very important reminder to check your Mezuzos & Tefillin, especially if you have not done so recently.
Can you find the problems?
PS. Hashem's name was purposely cropped out.
