RINKE CADILLAC

85 Years And Still Delivering

BREAK (S) THROUGH

in our chapel, but on Simchat Torah it
is in great demand."

Newly Written

While some Sifrei Torah read in our
synagogues today are old and refur-
bished, others were written and donat-
ed when brand new.
"Our newest Torah scroll was complet-
ed in 1999," says Rabbi Elliot Pachter of
Congregation B'nai Moshe in West
Bloomfield "It was a congregational proj-
ect to honor our late Torah reader,
Abram Rabinovitz."
With the final of the 613 com-
mandments in the Torah stating that it
is a mitzvah for every Jew to write a
Torah scroll, or if one is unable, to
engage a scribe to do it, many congre-
gations or individuals do just that.
"When we decided to have a Sefer
Torah written in honor of our parents,
we thought of the mitzvah," says
Simon Kresch of Southfield. Along
with his extended family, he dedicated
a Torah at the Norma Jean and Edward
Meer Jewish Apartments in West
Bloomfield in June 2002, in honor of
the anniversary of his parents, Molly
and Ben Kresch of Southfield.
"Since most of us lack the capability
to do so, we fulfilled the mitzvah by
owning the Torah and placing it on
permanent loan to the Meer
Apartments," Kresch says.
At the Birmingham Bloomfield Chai
Center, "the congregation, as a group,
had a Torah written, with one member
matching the donations made by the
others," says Rabbi Yochanan" Poker.
"A few years ago, a good chunk of our
membership contributed what it cost to
have a brand new Torah in our shul,"
says Ruvi Singal of Southfield, past pres-
ident of Young Israel of Oak Park.
Synagogue members Frances and Morris
Flatt of Oak Park underwrote most of
the cost of commissioning a Torah to be
written for the congregation.
"We had the last paragraph left blank,
so members could buy the honor of
writing a letter in the Torah," Singal
says. "The sofer (scribe) actually held the
quill with each person so they were actu-
ally writing in the letter themselves."
Observing the mitzvah of having a
Torah written is a reminder of all the
other mitzvot contained in it. It
demonstrates that we understand the
purpose of our creation — to keep the
'Torah and its commandments.
On Simchat Torah, we express grati-
tude to God for giving us the gift of
the Torah and we remember that no
matter where our Sifrei Torah have
come from, or how they got to us, it's
what's inside them that counts.
