It's one of those dramatic shul moments. The reader is sailing along with the Torah leyning on Shabbat morning, when suddenly he stops mid-verse. He squints at the Torah scroll, frowns and calls over the rabbi.
The rabbi bends over to examine the scroll and signals that it should be rolled up, put back in the ark and another scroll brought out for the rest of the reading.
