ABOUT THE PROJECT:
In honour of Israel’s 70th anniversary, Mizrachi Canada collected
Sifrei Torah from Jewish communities across the country. The
Torah scrolls will be sent to Israel to be refurbished, rededicated
and donated to the Israel Defence Forces, the Ministry of Defence,
charitable organizations and developing communities across Israel. As part of this initiative, the Chief Rabbi of Israel, Rabbi David Lau, came to Canada for an exciting and historical visit to celebrate the project and to send the Sifrei Torah to their new homes in Israel. This project united Canadian Jewish communities through their shared values of the Torah and Land of Israel.
