The 613th mitzvah in the Torah (the bible) commands that every Jew “write a Torah during his/her lifetime.” The Torah is at the heart of the Jewish people; in fulfilling this obligation, we ensure that the legacy will endure.
Members of the Jewish community are invited to participate in this rare opportunity. Not only will this fulfill a sacred mitzvah, but by honoring tradition you will help to shape and secure the future. Tzedakah raised through writing the Torah will be used to support 21st century education at Hillel –including technology, professional development for our staff, and financial assistance for those families who will find supporting their personal technology needs for our program prohibitive. Writing this Torah as a community celebrates our reason for being. Having the Sefer Torah project support progressive 21st century education unites the two major components of what Hillel strives to offer our students each and every day: an outstanding Jewish and general education. Hillel Day School is counting on you to help our sacred past shape our future while meeting the needs of today!
Commemorate a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, honor grandparents, parents, children, and teachers, or memorialize aloved one.
