  1. Title: Who should correct the Ba’al Koreh?
    Author: Chaim Simons ,

    A question which can well be asked is whether there should there be a specific person present to correct the mistakes of the Ba’al Koreh or may anyone in the congregation call out the correction? Rabbi Chaim David Halevi writes on this subject in his Mekor Chaim (part 3 125:9) that it is bad when the whole congregation call out such corrections, but instead a knowledgeable person should stand by the side of the reader and only he should correct any mistakes made by the reader. Incidentally, this was the procedure followed by the Chinese Jews of Kaifeng.
