The new Torah is being dedicated in the memory of Mrs. Chana Winter OBM, the wife of Reb Mendel Winter YBD”L who is a Besht Congregant, as well as Mrs. Chana Tzivia Kuperman OBM, the wife of Rabbi Shmuel Kuperman YBD”L the Rov of the Besht.

The new Torah is also to mark five years to the founding of the Besht.

Some 50 congregants and supporters gathered Tuesday evening to take part in the Shiur and the beginning of the new Torah, which is being written by veteran scribe Rabbi Yehuda Clapman father of Reb Sruli Clapman, the president of the Besht.
