# 2885 Not for Reading

Q. Can I bring a Sefer Torah to an outside back yard minyan on Simchas Torah to be used for hakofes only, if they will not read from it at all?
A. Mishna Berura (669: 9) quotes Ledovid Emes, that if they are only a few Sifrei Torah in a shul, one may bring one temporarily for the hakofes of Simchas Torah. Although, normally one may not remove a Sefer Torah from its permanent location for only a provisional use, during Simchas Torah, for the honor of the Torah it is permitted.
