"Then the other synagogue scrolls were
brought outside to welcome the new Torah and
to be carried up and down the main road of the
campus," Rabbi Shemtov said.
At the dedication, the Abels, who are found-
ing members of the Shul, also presented each of
their grandchildren a model of the new Torah,
handcrafted by Martin Abel.
"It was gorgeous," Rabbi Shemtov said.
"Each one was on a stand, in a glass case given
so each of the grandchildren will always feel a
connection with the Torah and will always
remember their Jewish heritage and their grand-
parents."
Guests were given a piece of fabric cut from
the material that made the Torah covering. "It
is given as a reminder of the cherished celebra-
tion and as a merit for health and long life,"
Rabbi Shemtov said.
For West Bloomfield's Brian Abel, 13-year-
old grandson of Phyllis and Martin Abel, the
special day held a personal milestone.
He was given the honor of receiving the first
aliyah (call to the Torah) to read from the new
Torah dedicated in memory of his great-grand-
parents.
"What a wonderful mitzvah," Rabbi
Shemtov said of the event. "A link to the past
— a legacy for the future." ❑
