Celebration of Conclusion of Torah Scroll Writing.
The writing of the Torah scroll, which was started almost a year ago, is nearing conclusion. Rav B. Zilber has decided that the celebration of its completion will take place at the annual convention of our organization which will be, b’ezrat Hashem, during Chanuka on December 26th, 2005 at the “Zvil” halls (address: Shmuel Anavi Street, 26). This is not far from the yeshiva of Toldos Yeshurun where the Torah will be brought in.

Those who have not yet participated in the writing of the Sefer Torah can do so by filling out and mailing the form, or by filling it out during the session. Those who contributed four lines or more will be awarded with certificates.
