Torah Restoration

"For four thousand years the Torah has taken care of the Jewish people.

Now it is our time to take care of the Torah."

Rabbi Edwin Goldberg

Torah scrolls are the center of our Jewish identity and we are obligated to treat them carefully and with respect. This includes periodic evaluations of each scroll to determine the "health" of the scroll. 

Over time, the ink used on a Torah scroll can crumble and fall off the scroll, or can change color and begin to fade. These letters need to be fixed along with any other issues found during its evaluation. Torah restoration is a sacred process and must be completed by a Sofer, a Jewish scribe. 

On Oct. 23 and 24, 2022, CBSW hosted a sofer to complete repairs to our Czech Memorial Scroll. CBSW members were invited to participate, and to help preserve our heritage from generation to generation—L'Dor V'Dor.
