2019 / 5779 The Year of Our New Sefer Torah
Why is NHBZ Writing a Sefer Torah?
Write this song for yourselves… (Deuteronomy 31:19) The last of the 613 mitzvos is the obligation to write a sefer Torah. Recognizing that not every individual possesses the requisite skill to do so himself, one may employ another person to do so on his behalf. Nowadays, it’s very common for people to sponsor letters, words or verses when their shul commissions a Torah scroll to be written. In this way, people can participate in the performance of this mitzvah. Our goal of 100% member participation in the NHBZ Sefer Torah Campaign!
