The Chabad ACT Synagogue is set to own its very first Torah thanks to principal sponsors Dr Alena and Jacob Reich.

The synagogue, which was established in 2009,  will hold an inaugural Siyum – completion ceremony – at The Australian Parliament House on October 19th with Jewish MP’s completing the final letters in the presence of many other MP’s, Senators and Jewish community leaders and members.

Following the siyum at 11am , the congregation will celebrate the hachnosas sefer Torah – inauguration of the Torah at a festive ceremony and dinner at the Chabad ACT Synagogue between 5:30 – 7:30 pm.

It is a Mitzvah for every Jew to write a Sefer Torah. As this isn’t always practical, our Sages have ruled that one could complete this Mitzvah by purchasing at least one letter in a communal Sefer Torah. It is a Mitzvah for one to also purchase for their children. Here is a unique opportunity to fulfil this Mitzvah for you and those you love in a Torah which will be making history.

Upon completion of each purchase a signed (letter/word etc in the Torah) certificate with the name of the person you purchased for will be mailed to your nominated address.
