Preventing Torah Scroll Theft

Hat Tip: LOZ

Speaking of Sta"M:

Internal controls was an interest of mine when I worked full time in audits. I still love hearing about new developments and a development to protect religious assets is of great interest. Machon Ot has developed methods of both identifying and registering Torah scrolls and if they can register critical mass it is believed that those who steal and sell Torahs on the black market will realize it is at their own risk. It is a shame that this development has to take place, but from an academic standpoint it is an interesting internal controls development. And anything that can help reduce the temptation of theft gets a thumbs up in my book also. Hatzlacha to Machot Ot!
