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 :)
