Help Support New Torah in S. Cruz


An important message from SC locals Jeanne Rosen and Doron Fishbin:


Happy Chanukah!

We hope you are all enjoying this wonderful holiday of light and joy. May it bring special blessings to you, your family, and all the world.

The two of us have taken on a special "task" this Chanukah -- to raise enough money to purchase a Torah for Chabad by the Sea. Our Chabad has had a Torah on loan all this time, which needs to be returned soon.

It is a rare, perhaps for some of us a once-in-a-lifetime, opportunity to participate in a community effort to purchase a Torah. Being part of such a mitzvah during Chanukah, a holiday that celebrates our dedication and persistence in upholding Jewish traditions, feels especially meaningful.

We have each made a substantial donation ourselves, and others have already joined with us in this holy task. Thanks to the generosity of many of you, we are already well on the way toward meeting our goal and are confident that Chabad by the Sea will soon have its own Torah!

Should you wish to be part of this community effort, please make out your check to Chabad by the Sea, note that it is for the Torah, and mail it to Chabad by the Sea, 406 Mission Street, Suite B, Santa Cruz, CA 95060. You can also contribute by going online to www.chabadbythesea.com/donate; please remember to specify that the contribution is for the Torah fund. You are welcome to call Jeanne (685-8350) or email her (jeannerosen@sbcglobal.net) with any questions.

We hope to conclude this effort by the end of Chanukah. And then we look forward to seeing you all at a big celebration to welcome the Torah to its new home!

Shalom,

Jeanne Rosen and Doron Fishbin
