Chabad Tucson is commissioning a Jewish scribe, or sofer, to check and repair mezuzot and tefillin on the premises at Congregation Young Israel.
Rabbi Moshe Liberow of Colorado Springs, Colo., will begin his work on Sunday, Aug. 31 and remain in Tucson for the duration of the week, depending on demand.
Jewish law recommends that mezuzahs be checked a minimum of two times every seven years. The custom is to do so before the Jewish new year, Rabbi Yehuda Ceitlin said.
