In a letter sent to his family from Federal prison, Sholom Rubashkin expressed support and encouragement for the effort to unite members of the community to have a Sefer Torah written in his merit.
Below is a video from his son who is leading the campaign, Getzel Rubashkin.
To participate in the writing of this Sefer Torah, please visit torahforsholom.com .
The following is the full transcript of the e-mail:
BARUCH HASHEM I had the Zechus that Rabbi Sternberg came with some talmidim to Farbreng with me :)
It was truly an uplifting time we had together :) We spoke about many things in Toirah Mitzvois and Avoidas HASHEM :)
And I told him about the Sefer Toirah being Completed very soon and I requested he should do so with all his Talmidim and he assured me he would do so :) so, if you could reach out to the Mechanchim You Know who are able to Join with their Talmidim and Talmidois to join in the Sefer Toirah it would be a Great Way to bring in more and More Mishtatfim :)
Please speak to them TODAY and also the Day AFTER :) and HASHEM YISBORAICH Will Surely Give you A lot of Hatzlocho :)
PLEASE DONT DELAY AS TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE :) and please let me know if you did so :)
HASHEM YISBORAICH SHOULD GIVE YOU ALL HIS BROCHOIS AND HATZLOCHO IN EVERYTHING YOU DO :)
