Halacha - Torah in the house
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

As long as the Sefer Torah is in a different room it is permitted.

However, I question the use of this segula. Shulchan Aruch and mefarshim in OC 135 list numerous conditions for moving a Sefer Torah, such as being needed for an important person to read from who cannot travel to shul, and it will be read from at least 3 times; and this doesn't seem to meet them. If your Rav approved of this, I withdraw my hesitation, but I have never heard of such a practice.
