It gives us great pleasure to invite you to take part in the Victoria Torah Scroll project that is about to commence this summer - here in Victoria, BC, for the first time ever.
The Victoria Torah Scroll is a new project initiated by Chabad of Vancouver Island. It aims to unite the Jewish community of Victoria and Vancouver Island by inviting members to take part in the creation of our very own Torah Scroll that will be scribed by all of us together here in Victoria, from beginning to end!
We’d like to personally offer you the following options for participating in this historical project:
$18+- Sponsoring a single letter in the Torah comes with a special Certificate in recognition of your contribution of a letter in Victoria's Torah.
$54+ - Sponsoring a word in the Torah comes with a framed Certificate in recognition of your contribution of the word that you sponsored in the Community Torah.
$180+ - Sponsoring a verse in the Torah will award you with a framed Certificate in recognition of the verse that you sponsored. In addition, your family name will be embroidered on the Torah mantle.
$500+ - Should you choose to sponsor a full Parsha in the Sefer Torah, you will receive a framed certificate and your family name will be embroidered on the Torah mantle. In addition, you will have the honour of assisting the Sofer in scribing the last letters in the Torah Scroll.
$5,000+ - Should you generously sponsor an entire Chumash in the Torah Scroll, you will receive a framed certificate, your special dedication will be embroidered on the Torah mantle and you will take part in writing a letter in the Torah. In addition, you will receive a leather-bound, personalized, limited edition transliterated Torah with commentaries.
$18,000 - Sponsoring a Torah Dedication includes the above and in addition, the donor will receive the main dedication of the Torah while the writing of the Torah will be completed at the donor's home.
We are grateful to our dear friends and great supporters Dr. Stanley and Mrs. Lindy Shortt who, along with the dedication of the Lionel and Margot Schneider Family Shul, dedicated this Torah in memory of their great grandparents Herschel and Sarah Gassnerand Moshe and Rushka Kleinwachs.
G-d willing, in June this year we will celebrate the beginning of the writing of our Victoria Torah in a special event at the Chabad Family Shul. With G-d's help, the writing of the Torah will be completed in 2018 at which time we will celebrate with a parade passing through the streets of Victoria and ending in the new Chabad Centre for Jewish Life and Learning, where a great celebration will take place.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR PARTICIPATION IN OUR VERY OWN VANCOUVER ISLAND TORAH SCROLL!
