Young Leadership Torah -
« Back to Chabad of the West Side

Dear Community Member and Friend,

It is with great excitement that The Downstairs Shul at The Chabad Annex announces the completion of the writing of a Torah Scroll for our local young Jewish community!

This Torah is a culmination of a project that was launched 4 years ago by members of the Downstairs Shul, The young leadership minyan at Chabad of the West Side. The idea was to have a Torah sponsored by the young Upper West Side Jewish community for the community.

We are thrilled to say that the torah is complete and a grand celebration is planned to welcome it on September 18th to it's new home, the Chabad Annex. The new home of the Downstairs Shul.

The Torah is the holiest and most precious article in Jewish life, for thousands of years the Jewish people have studied the Torah and lived by its laws.

The very last Mitzvah in the Torah (#613) is to write a Torah Scroll. It is thus an honor and great Mitzvah to participate in the writing of a Torah Scroll. By endowing a letter, word, or sentence for yourself, your children, family members, or friends, it is as if you have written your own Torah Scroll and have fulfilled this great Mitzvah!

We invite you to join us in writing history by purchasing a letter or verse for each member of your family. You also have the option of dedicating various portions of the Torah, and to buy in honor or memory of a loved one.

Learn more about this special Mitzvah  here. Get involved in the writing of this special Torah here.

Thank you!
