Did you know a new Torah scroll requires about a year to complete plus another month for meticulous inspections and assembly? Join us for a unique opportunity to see the writing of our Community Torah and learn more about the process of producing a kosher scroll.

The 613th commandment (mitzvah) says that each of us should write a Torah. Helping to create our Community Torah enables all of us to fulfill this very meaningful mitzvah in a personal way and to connect with our precious Jewish heritage. If you're interested in dedicating a verse or having a special session with Torah Scribe Rabbi Pincus, please contact Jeremy Ragent at jragent@stanford.edu.

11:00 am - Jewish Student Association hosts bagel brunch

11:30 am - Presentation by Torah Scribe Rabbi Pincus and opportunities for individual Torah dedications in our Hillel Community Torah; co-sponsored by Scribal Arts

This event is part of Hillel@Stanford’s 50th Anniversary Celebration. All events are free and open to the public. All Hillel@Stanford Half-Century anniversary events are generously underwritten in part by grants from the Taube and Koret Foundations. This project is supported by a Stanford Arts grant.
