Halachically Moving a Sefer Torah The Issur Mdrabanan one is not allowed to bring a Sefer Torah to one who is in jail even on Rosh Hashana and on Yom Kippur. The reason is because it is a disgrace for the Sefer Torah to be moved for a persons needs instead one should go greet the Sefer Torah. Some say this issur does not only apply to someone in jail but even to any other incident that makes a person unable to come to shul and hear laining i.e. he is sick.
