    Default Torrafied is actually an ancient Jewish process

    Any young boy, age 12 or 13, can tell you that the right of passage called Bar Mitsve is an intimidating process. They have to learn enough Hebrew in order to read a part of the Torah in front of the whole congreagtion. They often describe their situation as being terrified.

    What is not known is that the process of drying wood to enhance some acoustic qualities is actually an ancient Kosher process similar to the experience of the Bar Mitsve boy. It is called Torah-fied.

    Thank you for the information.I am on occassion interested in tidbits related to my culture as I know nothing. I could be the most goyish person to exist as my grandparents held no beliefs in culture or religion and this was passed through my parents to me. Now, with your post I coiuld even become more goyish if I quote you. My jewish friends will have more fodder to kid me.
    My loss? Perhaps or perhaps not.
    My parents, did however, instill a grest desire to be kind and do no harm.

    Torah-fying is a crucial step toward producing a fine, divine scroll.

    Anybody remember the movie Torah, Torah, Torah, back in the sixties? I watched it and I was torrefied—I mean, terrified.
