THE REDEDICATION OF OUR TORAH SCROLLS
Thank you, Rabbi Rue, for coming from Los Angleles to complete the repair of our four Torah scrolls, and thank you to the generous members of the congregation and community who made it possible. Our Siyum marked the completion of this effort, and in the process we learned a lot, celebrated, ate good food and enjoyed our talented musicians. Mazeltov to everybody!
