Jewish American Heritage Torah

The final portion of the Torah (31:19) states: "Write unto you this song…." It is a Mitzvah for each Jewish person to help complete a Torah Scroll. Each letter in the Torah represents a Jewish soul, and a completed Torah completes Jewish Unity. A friend of Clifton Park Chabad is dedicating this Torah in memory of his Jewish American relatives: Poetess Emma Lazarus & Supreme Court Justice Benjamin Cardozo This historic Communal Torah will Celebrate 360 years of Jewish Life in America! Clifton Park Chabad offers you the opportunity to join in completing this historic Torah. Please consider dedicating a letter, word etc. for yourself and your family, or in memory of departed loved ones. To dedicate a handwritten letter by the scribe in this Torah call Rabbi Yossi 495-0772 or visit www.jewishamericantorah.com Jewish Americans’ impact on our nation predates even America’s founding, 360 years ago when a group of immigrants, twenty-three impoverished Jews arrived by ship in September 1654, to New York City, then known as New Amsterdam. "Jewish immigrants from all over the world wove new threads into our cultural fabric with rich traditions & indomitable faith & their descendants pioneered incredible advances in science & arts" "Teachings from the Torah lit the way toward a more perfect Union" -President Obama - Jewish American Heritage Month May 2013
