Frequently Asked Questions

Who can participate in the Torah Writing Experience?

Everyone! Writing a letter in our new Torah is open to ALL members of the Congregation Beth Israel community. Create your personal connection with Torah.·   

Can I fill in a specific letter that I have dedicated?

Congregants sign up for their turn and fill in the next available letter. It is truly amazing and inspirational when the Sofer relates how each letter that a person randomly receives is directly connected with their life. The Sofer will write the letter you filled in on the certificate you receive. You will also receive a photo as you and the Sofer both scribe your letter in our new Torah.·   

When and where can we meet the Sofer?

Over the next several months, we will be holding a series of events for the CBI community to meet the Sofer, write in the Torah and participate in this incredibly moving educational experience. Events will be included in this newsletter and on the CBI website.
