North Carolinians Welcome New Torah

| |

Some 300 community members and guests turned out for a special Torah dedication ceremony, parade and family fun fair at Chabad in Greensboro, NC.

The ceremony marked the completion of a brand new Torah scroll that will now find its home in the shul at the Chabad center, which is run by Rabbi Yosef and Hindy Plotkin. The new Torah was donated by benefactor Mr. Eli Zami.

“The Torah is a living guide for that instills our lives with life-giving values and an abiding connection with something greater, a power that reaches beyond the vicissitudes of life,” explains Rabbi Plotkin.

During the event, Rabbi Moshe Klein — a prominent scribe -– assisted participants in the writing of last several words of the Torah scroll while children stuffed toy Torah scrolls.
