Writing the community Torah
Many in the Tri-Valley Jewish population gathered last weekend to create a new community Torah. Rabbi Raleigh Resnick of Chabad of the Tri-Valley, which planned the event, said young and old wrote letters in the Torah with the scribe, Rabbi Moshe Liberow of Colorado. The Jewish scriptures are comprised of 204,805 letters, symbols and characters. Accuracy is key, Resnick added, as the document is unusable if it contains an error. It is expected that the scribe will complete the project in about 265 full-days of work. To learn more about Chabad of the Tri-Valley, call 846-0700 or visit www.jewishtrivalley.com.
