We'll be Writing History!

Torah completion this Sunday!

This Sunday (Dec. 10th) we will complete the writing of a brand new Torah scroll right here in Santa Cruz! We will be joined by Rabbi Moshe Klein, a fourth generation Sofer (ritual scribe), who will write the last few lines of the Torah.

Here are all the details: What, Where & When

We will gather at the Vets Hall at 1:00 PM for the completion ceremony. (If you will be joining Rabbi Klein in writing a letter, you will be asked to arrive a bit earlier. See below.) Refreshments will be served. The Torah will be completed and then all present will parade the Torah up to Chabad by the Sea. (We're praying for wonderful weather!)

At Chabad we will have a welcoming ceremony for the Torah followed by a light but festive lunch.

Special Kids' Workshop While the Torah is being completed, we will have a special Torah writing workshop for the children! At this workshop the kids will learn how a Torah is written and even get to try their little hands at wiring in the special Torah script with a real quill on real parchment!

Every Jewish child in town should know about this! Help spread the word.

Dedication Opportunities In keeping with tradition, dedication of portions of the Torah is being made available. Those who wish to can sponsor anything from an entire book of the Torah, a Parsha (e.g. your Bar Mitzvah Parsha...) or even a single letter. All who dedicate any part of the Torah will be honored with the joining Rabbi Klein in writing one of the final letters in this special Torah.

Here are the dedication options:
Book - $1,800 Parsha - $540 Aliyah - $360 Verse - $180 Letter - $54

You can make dedications using our online donation form at www.chabadbythesea.com/donate or by contacting me at the phone number or email address below.

Dedications should be made in advance of the event if possible.

I hope you can join us! Please join us if you can and please help us get the word out by forwarding this email on to your friends.

Thank you and looking forward to seeing you.
