TOrah Project

The Beth Jacob Family Shul along with 69 other Jewish communities throughout North America will be donating a Sefer Torah to various communities throughout Israel. The Torah's will find a home in army bases, hospitals, police stations and memorial chapels, to name a few. 
A plaque with all of the donors names from the Beth Jacob community will be displayed in the building where the Torah will be donated. You will have the opportunity to donate a parsha that is meaningful to you and to your family. All of the donations will go directly to Beth Jacob. 
How to donate:
Pick a parsha that has significance to you, i.e. your/your children's bar/bat mitzvah parsha.
The cost is $72/parsha. 
Please make cheques payable to Beth Jacob or donate online with the comment: Torah donation and name of the parsha. 
The deadline is April 25.

The culmination of this project will take place May 6th in Toronto. There will be a community wide Hachnasot Sifrei Torah, Torah inauguration ceremony, as well as other celebrations throughout the week.  The Chief Rabbi of Israel, Rabbi David Lau, and the Deputy Defense Minister, Eli Ben-Dahan will be at these exciting events.
