The Torah scroll is being completed as we celebrate our first anniversary of weekly Shabbat services where people of all backgrounds and affiliations join together on a weekly basis to connect through meaningful prayer services, Torah discussions and a kiddush lunch.

One Torah, One People
One letter in the Torah corresponds to each and every Jewish soul. Whilst holding the Torah, we hold the collective Jewish soul in the palm of our hands. Just as each letter of the Torah is essential to its integrity — its absence invalidating the entire scroll — so is each and every Jewish person of paramount significance. Like the letters in the Torah, every Jew embodies an integral and inseparable part of the Jewish people. Without labels or differences, regardless of background or affiliation, the Torah connects us to each other, one letter at a time, to be “One People.”

It’s a Major Mitzvah!

The Torah’s 613th mitzvah/commandment is for each of us to write a Torah scroll. Minimally, this mitzvah can be observed by commissioning the writing of at least part of the Torah scroll. By dedicating a letter, word, verse or chapter in the Torah for yourself, your family members or friends, or in memory of departed loved ones, it is considered as if you have written your very own Torah scroll. Chabad of Anne Arundel County offers you the opportunity to be a part of our Community Torah.

Writing a Torah is a timeless connection to the past and a key to a Jewish future. At the center of Judaism is the living Torah scroll that helps us navigate the spiral of life.

Please consider being a part of this great Mitzvah!
