Transcribing the Torah

Question

I want to write down the Torah for a deeper understanding about the Torah text. The original Torah is written in Hebrew. Is it OK for a Noahide to write down the Torah text in Hebrew? How about in English or in Korean? Is it permissible?

  1. Yes, it is fine. The Torah can be written down by a Noachide. It can be written in the original Hebrew or it can be written down in another language. But to have the holiness of a actual “Torah Scroll” it must be written according to the Halacha – the code of the laws of Judaism.
