250th Anniversary Sefer Torah Inauguration Gala

On Sunday, October 28th close to 300 people celebrated the inauguration of the 250th anniversary Sefer Torah that was generously brought from Israel to Montreal from Mayer Sasson. Rabbi Yehuda Abittan led the ritual of bringing the Torah into the synagogue, having the Torah text completed and finally carrying it in its beautiful case into the Mashaal Sanctuary. The evening was filled joy, warmth, lots of singing, a sense of community and hope for the future.

 

Many members had the opportunity to complete a letter in the Torah with the scribe. This took place under the 250th anniversary quilt, which was the chuppah, that was generously made and donated by Gloria Stermer-Murad and her team of volunteers from the Loose Threads Quilt Guild.
