Dear Community Member & Friend,

We are excited to announce the launch of the Lake Tahoe CommUnity Torah Campaign. The Jewish people are compared to the letters of the Torah. In our tradition, no letter is more important than another. All the letters of our Holy Torah are interdependent, for without even one letter, the Torah remains incomplete. Similarly, each Jew remains linked with all other Jews in an indissoluble chain.

For the first time at Chabad, a CommUnity Torah is being written for you, our community!

For the first time at Chabad, a CommUnity Torah is being written for you, our community! Without labels, without differences and regardless of background or affiliation, this Torah will connect us all to each other, one letter at a time, connecting each to a word, a sentence, a paragraph, a portion, a book, five books and a Torah, connecting each of us as “One People”.

Link yourself by participating in the writing of this historic CommUnity Torah Scroll. Each part of the Torah, letters, words, sentences, and Torah portions, can be endowed in honor of you or your family and in memory of your loved ones.

A new Torah scroll is a sign of a vibrant community – a healthy, robust and flourishing community that is brimming with Jewish pride. Here in Lake Tahoe we are writing a new chapter in Jewish history: We are writing our community’s first Torah scroll.

Please read through the following pages on our campaign website, to learn more about the uniqueness of this special opportunity, and how you can get involved and join.

Please G-d the Torah will be completed on Sunday March 14, 2021. Stay tuned for a Lake Tahoe Torah welcoming event in the spring.
