Frankfurt Welcomes New Sefer Torah

The streets of Frankfurt, Germany, the economic capital of Germany, were filled at a joyous Torah completion ceremony this past Sunday

The event was led by the Head of the Beis Din of Frankfurt Harav Yosef Yerachmiel Havlin, head Shliach Rabbi Zalman Gurevitch, Rabbi Moshe Mendelshon and Rabbi Menachem Rosenberg, together with the local Chabad Yeshiva students and community members who had participated in purchasing of letters in the unity Torah.

Before the event spilled into the streets, the writing of the last letters in the new Torah scroll took place. At the completion of the procession, the audience sat down for a festive Seudas Mitzvah, and heard divrei Torah.
