Be Part of This Once-In-A-Lifetime Opportunity
Be part of this unique Torah Project that includes approximately 16 months of Torah learning activities and scribing opportunities for our Temple Emanu-El congregants and greater Westfield community. We are honored to have Linda Coppleson, one of the first female Torah scribes, guiding us and helping us fulfill the last of the 613 commandments – the writing of a Torah.
Torah Project Scribing Opportunity
With your sponsorship of the Torah Project you have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to sit with a Soferet (scribe) and write in the Torah. Meaningful sponsorship may include a particular part of the Torah like a Bar/Bat Mitzvah parsha, a Hebrew name of a child or grandchild, a favorite holiday, a letter, a word, an especially significant passage, or even a book. Your family has the opportunity to hold the wrist or shoulder of the Soferet, as she helps us fulfill the 613th commandment – the writing of a Torah.
To support this project and/or participate in a future scribing event, please consider a sponsorship level that is right for you.
