‘Write On’ Students Dedicate Torah In Israel

03/06/2012

Maale Adumim — With music blasting, 50 New York-area teens from Write On For Israel, The Jewish Week’s two-year advocacy program for high school students, danced up the streets of this West Bank community last Sunday with a Sefer Torah they brought from the United States. The Torah was donated to a local synagogue in memory of one of its young members, fallen IDF soldier Erez Deri.

In Jewish tradition, last Saturday — the 18th day of Elul — was a significant date. It is the anniversary of the birth of two major chasidic figures: the Baal Shem Tov, founder of the chasidic movement; and Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi, founder of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement.
