  1. It would seem from Rabbi Oberlanders words,that if a sofer
    did not write Alter Rebbes script properly it could make shailos of
    invalidation (psul).This is because some letters are difficult to write.
    This is true with any script.Its important to know with any script
    who is the sofer and if he was trained properly.
