Seven brand new Sifrei Torahs will be completed and dedicated tonight in a grand Siyum that the entire community is invited to attend. Ahead of the event, CrownHeights.info got an exclusive sneak peek at the new Torahs, which are being prepared by Rabbi Moshe Klein of Hasofer for the event.
Donated by Chilean philanthropist Mr. Leonardo Farkas, these seven new Sifrei Torah will be placed with Shluchim around the world. These join the additional four Torahs he donated and completed at the Kinus Hashluchim two years ago.
The Torahs are being dedicated in honor of the Rebbe, the Alter Rebbe, the Baal Shemtov, Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky and Rabbi Avrohom Korf.
The completion of the final letters will take place this Wednesday evening, beginning at 5:00pm at Oholei Torah, 667 Eastern Parkway, with a special kids program starting at 5:15pm. A joyous procession with live music and singer Avraham Fried will begin at 6:30pm, followed by Hakafos in 770 at 7:15pm. The entire community is invited to attend.
Refreshments will be served throughout the event, along with ‘nosh pekelach’ for the children.
