Even upon a superficial

ing. While we should be
cognizant of the realities,
there is no reason for de-
spair. On the contrary, it is
incumbent upon us to find
ways to overcome these

At this juncture in world
history, unity amongst
Jews is of crucial impor-
tance. This was demon-
strated by the hasmonians
on Chanukah. 'To help

achieve this unity, the
Lubavitcher Rebbe
shelitah has proposed that
a Sefer Torah be written,
in which every Jewish
man, womart, or child may
buy one letter.

The Torah consists of
304,805 letters. If even one
of its letters is missing or
improperly written, the
whole Torah is POSUL,
does not carry its full sanc-
tity and cannot be used for
the purpose of reading it in
the congregation. So it is
with the Jewish people
who are all represented in
the Torah. If even one Jew
— whoever he may be — is
"missing" from our people,
it weakens the strength
and unity of our nation.



Accordingly at the fer-
vent request and urging of
the Lubavitcher Rebbe
shelitah, several Sifrei To-
rahs are now being writ-
ten in different parts of the
world in order to give
every Jewish person an
opportunity to participate
in this "drive of unity"
among our generation and
also unity with genera-
tions gone by, our beloved
ancestors. We will write as
many Torahs as needed
until no one is left behind.

Please join millions of
Jews by purchasing an in-
dividual letter in this To-
rah, for yourself, for each
member of your family
and for your friends — or
as a memorial for a de-
parted friend or relative.

This is not a fund rais-
ing effort. While there is
obvious importance and a
MITZVAH in demon-
strating your love for the
Torah by purchasing your
letter with the utmost of
your financial ability,
what is most important
here is that YOU PAR-
TICIPATE, regardless of
the amount represented in
dollars and cents.

May our participation
and that of our brethren
the-world over bring to
fruition speedily in our
days, King David's prom-
ise "The Al-mighty will
grant strength (Torah) to
His nationa, the Al-
mighty will bless His na-
tion with peace." (Psalms
