Reserve your space to write a letter in our Torah scroll
Here is your once-in-a-lifetime chance to write a Torah scroll. Or as least to write a part of one, as you touch an inked quill to one of our Torah scrolls.
All members of Temple Israel ages 13 and up are invited to participate in the re-lettering of one of our Torah scrolls when Sofer Neil Yerman returns to complete the restoration process of our scrolls. You will have the opportunity to add the finishing touches by restoring a faded letter, with the spiritual and physical guidance of the Sofer.
You may choose ONE of the following sessions:
Thursday, April 30 ~ 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Sunday, May 3 ~ 11:00am - 1:00pm
Reservations are required.
We are ONLY accepting reservations online.
If you need assistance, call Rabbi Cohn directly.
