The dedication of a Torah
scroll last year at Borman
Hall planted the seed for the
Siyum Ha-Torah Project for
?es or passages which tie in-
to family names or incidents.
The 17 adult women who
will celebrate their b'not
mitzvah on Sunday, the first
day of Shavuot, are
dedicating the first verse of
the Ten Commandments in
the new sefer Torah, and Rab-
bi Groner will talk about the
project on the second day of
the holiday.
The synagogue's confirma-
tion class is dedicating a
verse and its senior citizens
group was shown "Let's Talk
Torah" last week.
"This has been really
special for Shaarey Zedek,"
said Dottie Wagner. "It is not
your normal handful of people
working on a project.
Everyone is getting involved."
