Simchat Torah Celebration October 22, 2019

The new Torah is coming, the new Torah is coming!!!

The gift of a Torah

We are being gifted with a new Torah and breast plate as our current Torah has become illegible and torn.

Jan Braverman, member of LCJC reached out to her congregation, B’er Chayim Temple in Cumberland, Maryland regarding our Torah and they wonderfully replied they would be gifting us with a Torah.

Built in 1866 B’er Chayim Temple is the oldest synagogue building in continuous use as a synagogue in Maryland and the sixth oldest in the United States. Jan’s family was very active in the Jewish Community and donated a breast plate in honor of her

grandparents for their fiftieth anniversary. This is the Torah we are receiving. Eight members including Rabbi Mark Perman are traveling here with the Torah.

A big celebration is being planned- a parade, dancing horses, special music and plenty of food. Of course, food, what’s a Jewish celebration without noshes?

Anyone wishing to donate to help with purchasing a seat for the Torah and our celebration please contact Jan Braverman at janbrave@aol.com .
