Haftarah Project
Haftara Project The   writing   of   a   Torah   or   any   part   of   the   Holy   Scriptures,   in   conjunction   with   a   Project   is   the   fulfillment of   Mitzvah   613   –   to   “Write   a   Torah.”   A   Sefer   Haftara   Project   Journey   is   an   enriching   and   unifying community experience. Sofer   On   Site    has   developed   over   the   years   a   new   and   fresh   approach   to   fulfilling   the   command   of writing   a   scroll.   Scribing   a   Sefer   Haftarot   transforms   from   a   traditional   idea   into   an   opportunity   to   enrich Jewish   identity.   We   tailor   learning   &   educational   components   that   excite   and   include   every   member   of a   community.   In   addition,   we   serve   as   consultants   and   provide   innovative   marketing   &   fundraising tools   and   ideas.   The   center   and   focus   of   the   Project   is   to   present   a   community   with   a   rare   spiritual   & uplifting   opportunity   for   each   member.   Everyone   can   participate;   not   only   by   giving   towards   the   writing, and   not   only   learning   &   being   inspired   by   the   writing,   but   most   importantly   by   receiving   a   once-in-a- lifetime   chance   to   actually   become   part   of   making   Jewish   history!   This   is   done   in   part   by   holding   the quill (together with the Sofer) and scribing in the scroll. The   feelings   of   astonishment   &   wonder   are   intertwined   with   divine   coincidences   and   insights   that families   and   individuals   experience   during   the   letter   writing   sessions.   This   spiritual   exhilaration   offers   a cherished lifelong Jewish memory and a new sense of belonging and connection with Judaism! We   are   confident   that   with   our   combined   efforts,   this   important   and   holy   objective   of   writing   a   Sefer Haftara   will   excite   and   inspire   your   congregation   in   Judaism,   while   motivating   them   to   a   higher   level   of Jewish giving Prospective: A Sefer Haftara Project will have two major funding expenses to consider: The scribing of the Sefer Haftarot scroll Sofer On Site  Project Services These    amounts    can    either    be    solicited    up    front    from    a    prospective    donor,    or    calculated    as    a percentage of the projected fundraising goal. The Year of the Sefer Haftara Haftara Scroll Scribing We   provide   you   with   a   script   sample   and   quoted   price,   if   requested,   other   samples   and   prices   will   be provided.   Once   the   script   is   confirmed,   a   scribing   contract   will   be   drawn   up.   The   average   cost   of   a good   quality   Sefer   Haftarah   is   around   $15-20,000.   There   are   scrolls   for   less,   though   the   quality   will   be reduced   as   well.   The   cost   of   a   scroll   depends   on   the   clarity,   beauty   and   consistency   of   the   script   as well   as   the   weight   and   size   of   the   parchment.   We   accommodate   adding   Nekudot   to   the   script   which will cost about $3-5,000 extra. Once   the   price   of   the   scroll   is   finalized,   a   down   payment   of   1/4   of   the   cost   will   be   due   upon   signing   of the   contract.   Then   the   remaining   amount   will   be   paid   in   three   equal   payments   after   each   third   of   the scroll   is   complete,   examined   &   shipped   to   us   for   verification   and   quality   inspection.   Upon   receipt   of each of these portions, the congregation is billed for the remaining 3/4 of the cost. Sefer Haftara Project Services Sofer   On   Site    offers   a   one-stop-shop   of   wide   ranging   valuable   project   tools   and   services   in   five segments: A. Project Management, Analysis & Development: B. Letter Fill-In Ceremonies & Visits: C. Education Component: D. Marketing & Publicity: E. Fundraising Consultation: (for more information on above, please call) So what are the costs? Sofer   On   Site    is   proud   to   offer   all   its   services   in   a   tailored   and   personalized   fashion. The   quotes   below are   for   Project   complete   segments,   while   each   congregation   can   choose   and   select   the   items   and services they require to customize the prices. An   overall   estimate   can   be   from   a   mere   $5k   to   as   high   as   $45k,   depending   on   the   congregation size,   the   scope   of   your   Project,   the   number   of   visits   required   and   your   community   unique   needs. Travel costs are extra and billed separately All   costs   and   fees   are   paid   out   as   equal   payments   spread   out   over   the   duration   of   the   Project. We work with you to tailor our services and fees to fit your needs and budget To   reduce   the   upfront   set   service   cost,   we   provide   an   attractive   offer   to   “pay   as   you   earn” payment   plan   on   a   portion   of   our   services.   We   do   the   marketing   and   fundraising   work   and   only get   paid   a   percentage   of   the   fundraising   income.   With   this   option,   there   is   no   upfront   cost   or commitment. Just pay as you earn. A   good   cost   calculation   is   to   consider   the   cost   and   fees   of   the   Project   to   be   around   20-25%   of   the fundraising goal. Please   ask   us   for   a   full   and   complete   Project   Proposal   (that   will   include   script   samples   to   select   from and a detail and itemized list of our services and fees).
