Torah Dedication and Celebration

  • On Monday, March 30th 2019, 12:00pm Chabad of Ocala and The Villages will be completing our very own Torah. A special sofer (scribe) will come to finish the Torah in the tradition dating back to Moses. We will then dance and celebrate as the New Torah is welcomed into our shul and community. The Torah is dedicated by Chaim and Miiraim Hecht in loving memory of James and Harriet Bern, Yonah hakohen ben and Yehudis Devorah Bat Meir ob"m.  

    The Torah is our most precious item, sustaining the Jewish people throughout history. It tells us that every Jew, regardless of background or knowledge, has an equal share in the Torah.

    The 613th and final mitzvah in the Torah is that every Jew writes his own Sefer Torah. Our Rabbis have taught that one can fulfill this mitzvah by dedicating a portion or even one letter in a Torah. You can choose below what you would like to dedicate for the Torah. Each Donation of $180 or more will receive a special plaque with a piece of the Torah mantel on it.

    Have the Sofer write a portion or a letter in the Torah just for you! Both children and adults will be given an opportunity to participate in this mitzvah.
