A new sefer Torah, to be housed in the Henry Cohen Campus, will be celebrated on Monday, July 23 (1.45pm) at the Etz Chaim Synagogue, after the writing of the final letters.
The sefer, which will be used by the community’s children, has been written in honour of Rabbi Jason Kleiman and his wife, Elise, and dedicated in memory of Dr John Sinson.
The event will be the start of celebrations involving Brodetsky Primary School and Leeds Jewish Free School.
More than £25,000 has been raised through donations from individuals and companies, as well as from the Beth Hamidrash Hagadol, Chassidishe, Etz Chaim and United Hebrew Congregation synagogues.
The families of the Kleimans and the late Dr Sinson will be writing the final letters on the day.
However, if anyone in the community wishes to write a letter beforehand, contact email@example.com.
Dates for the letter writing will be at Rabbi Daniel Levy’s home on Tuesday, July 10 (6-7.30pm) and Wednesday, July 18 (6-7.30pm).
Rabbi Levy and his son, Elisha, LJFS head boy, are the project co-ordinators.
