Dothan Temple – Restores its 250 Year-old Holocaust Torah
August 27, 2012
On Sunday, August 26th, Temple Emanu-El enjoyed a day-long celebration as its 250 year-old Holocaust Torah returned to the synagogue from six weeks of repairs/restoration at Miami’s Sofer on Site workshop.
Sofer/Rabbi Salazar presented two lectures, one to congregants and one to the general Dothan community.
Thirty congregant families had the unique, lifetime opportunity to inscribe a letter in the Torah, with Sofer Salazar’s expert assistance.
After a warm and wonderful congregational dinner, Rabbi Lynne Goldsmith then lead us in a very special Torah rededication service.
