Dear Friend,

We are so excited to share with you the fabulous news of the launch of the Bainbridge Island & Kitsap County CommUnity Torah Campaign!

For the very first time in the history of Kitsap County, a CommUnity Torah is being written for you, the local Jewish community!

For the very first time in the history of Kitsap County, a CommUnity Torah is being written for you, the local Jewish community!

A new Torah scroll is a sign of a vibrant community - a healthy, robust and flourishing community that is brimming with Jewish pride. Without labels, without differences and regardless of background or affiliation, this Torah will connect us all to each other. Individual letters will come together to form a word, a sentence, a paragraph, a portion, a book, and a Torah, uniting us as  one people.

This project was initiated in honor of the millions of Jews throughout history who have given their lives for their connection to G-d, to the Torah, and to the Jewish people. May their legacy serve as an inspiration to us all, to strengthen our connection to G-d, to His Torah, to our fellow Jew, and in fulfilling our eternal mandate to be the “light unto the nations”.

Join in the unity by participating in the writing of this historic CommUnity Torah Scroll! Every part of the Torah, from the letters, to the portions, to the crown can be endowed in honor or in memory of your loved ones.

The writing of the Torah will begin with a joyous celebration here in Bainbridge Island, G-d willing, on  January 10, 2021, by a Sofer, a scribe, who will come specifically for this purpose. For any dedication, you will have the rare and unique opportunity to assist the Sofer in writing a letter in the Torah Scroll. Due to COVID-19 there will only be one family present at a time.

Our sages tell us that this mitzvah has the special power of bestowing G-d’s blessings on participants and their families for all their material and spiritual needs. 

Here in Bainbridge Island we will be making history by beginning the writing of the first ever local CommUnity Torah.  Join us in writing history!

We look forward to celebrating with you,

Rabbi Mendy and Shaina Goldshmid

Be a part of it!
