Chabad on River will welcome its first Sefer Torah on Sunday, April 10 at 10 a.m. with a processional from the Tucson Jewish Community Center to Chabad on River, followed by a celebratory brunch.
The Torah, says Rabbi Ram Bigelman, was originally written for a yeshiva in Tiberias, Israel, which was supported by Tucsonans Aryeh and Shalom Laytin. The yeshiva closed and the Torah was moved to a synagogue in Israel, but then the Laytin brothers decided to have it brought here for Chabad.
There is no charge to attend the celebration. For more information, call 615-9443.
