Sefer Torah for Misaskim of Greater Washington – Misaskim provides families with all that is necessary for shiva. It does not, however, have its own Sefer Torah for use exclusively in shiva homes. Providing a Sefer Torah has strained the resources of our shuls, especially when there are multiple shiva homes. Rabbi and Mrs. Zvi and Esti Teitelbaum have launched a campaign to raise funds for a Sefer Torah in memory of their daughter, Chayala a"h, who was nifteres several months ago.
