═══════════════════════════════ S id Sokol - Congregation Shir Ami - Cedar Park, TX On   behalf   of   Congregation   Shir-Ami   I   wish   to   thank   Rabbi   Selwyn,   Rabbi   Dorfman, Leah   Yehudah,   and   all   others   whom   I   may   not   know   of   but   who   played   a   part   in   our highly successful event yesterday. Rabbi   Selwyn   arrived   at   10:30   a.m.   from   Houston,   and   got   right   to   work.   His   evaluation determined   his   priorities   for   repair   of   our Torah   Scroll.   First,   he   told   us   that   it   was   in   fact a   Sefardic   scroll   less   than   50   years   old   and   may   or   may   not   have   been   written   by   a student.   He   told   us   that   the   seams   were   the   most   critical   work   to   be   done   since   there were   tears   and   even   separations,   probably   because   it   is   a   Sefardic   scroll   (most   likely from Israel) and it had been utilized as an Ashkanazi scroll would. After   he   repaired   the   seams,   he   then   began   with   the   text.   He   completed   this   work   at about 6:30 pm just in time for his presentation in front of about 30 of our congregants. He was a huge success! We   sincerely   hope   his   experience   was   a   pleasant   one   and   that   his   return   to   South   Florida   was   a   save   one   and uneventful. Thanks again to your entire crew. ═══════════════════════════════ R ochelle Schwartz - Temple Israel - West Bloomfield, MI My   husband   and   I   were   grateful   to   participate   in   such   an   amazing   experience.   Thank you to Temple Israel for providing this opportunity to us and the community. _________________ barry seifman - temple israel - West Bloomfield, MI   Very educational , pleasant experience. ═══════════════════════════════ L aurel Fisher - Temple Shalom - Dallas, TX Sofer   On   Site    was   ready   and   available   to   help   us   every   step   of   the   way.   From   planning our   events   to   creating   lovely   certificates   for   the   participants,   they   were   very   helpful.   Our Torah is lovely and I look forward to chanting from it for many years to come. I   have   written   one   other   letter   in   a   Torah,   the   bet   in   the   word   b'nai.   It   was   special because   I   know   I   can   always   find   it.   This   time,   we   wrote   the   aleph   in   the   word   bara   at the   beginning   of   the   Torah.   Again,   I   know   just   where   to   find   my   special   letter. ═══════════════════════════════ B enjamin I. Kreshtool - Beth El Congregation - Baltimore, MD Dear Rabbi Salazar Thank   you   very   much   for   looking   at   two   of   our   Sifrei   Torah    during   your   visit.   I   very   much appreciate   your   time   and   the   work   you   did.   Keeping   our   scrolls   maintained   and   kosher is   a   priority   of   mine,   and   I   am   personally   very   glad   of   the   relationship   we   have   with Sofer On Site . I am confident that should we require your services again, we will be in touch. Best wishes to you and yours in 5777! Sincerely, ═══════════════════════════════ H arvey Sundel - Marketing & Publicity Chair - Hebrew Educational Alliance Harvey Sundel - Hebrew Educational Alliance Sofer   On   Site    was   terrific   to   work   with.   They   have   extensive   experience   with   helping Shuls    develop    and    implement    a   Torah    writing    Project.   As    a    result,    they    have    an extensive database full   of   examples   of   visuals,   forms,   etc.   used   by   other   Shuls   who   have   implemented   a Torah   writing   project.   We   were   encouraged   to   review   these   examples   and   use   things that   would   be   appropriate   for   us.   Rabbi   Goldstein,   with   whom   I   worked,   made   valuable suggestions,   and   was   always   willing   to   tweak   whatever   we   chose   to   make   it   better   fit our needs. When needed, he would customize a visual jus for us. Congregants   were   very   impressed   with   Rabbi   Druin.   He   did   an   incredible   job   of   talking   people   and   telling   the   the meaning of their letter. Many people I spoke to said they were genuinely moved by the experience. Overall. Sofer On Site  helped us implement a very successful and meaningful Torah writing project. _________________ Ellen   Schneeweis   -   Education   Chair   -   Hebrew   Educational   Alliance,   Denver,   CO I   had   the   most   wonderful   experience   Co-chairing   the   Education   of   Mitzvah   613.   I   felt   like   this   project   really   was   beautiful to   bring   everyone   in   our   HEA   membership   together   as   one   community.   Personally   it   was   such   a   touching   and   treasured experience   that   included   my   children,   as   well!   I   have   done   a   lot   of   volunteer   work   in   many   Jewish   Communities   since 1993.   Flattered   that   I   could   be   chosen   for   this   position,   and   I   will   always   treasure   this   project,   and   we   raised   a   lot   of money,   in   a   meaningful   way!   We   were   lucky   enough   to   use   the   Torah   for   my   youngest   son's   (I   have   four   sons.)   May   16, 2015 Bar Mitzvah!! from those who enjoyed such a positive experience. ═══════════════════════════════ Mi chelle Goldsmith, Congregation with Beth Emeth, VA I   have   had   the   pleasure   of   working   with   Sofer   On   Site    at   two   different   synagogues   - Temple   Beth-El   in   Birmingham,   Alabama   and   Congregation   Beth   Emeth   in   Herndon, Virginia.    Both    times    the    sofer    repaired    our    scrolls    beautifully    and    educated    my congregants   -   from   young   to   old   -   about   the   process   of   making   parchment,   writing   a Torah,   how   to   keep   a Torah   clean   and   in   good   repair,   and   how   meaningful   it   is   to   create and   preserve   Torah   scrolls.   Our   congregants   are   still   talking   about   the   visit   from   Sofer On Site  and it has been six months! ═══════════════════════════════ R abbi   Dan   Moskovitz   -   Senior   Rabbi   Temple   Sholom   Vancouver,   BC   Canada Dear Rabbi Druin, Thank   you   so   much   for   not   only   our   physical   Torah,   but   the   Torah   of   your   beautiful n’shama   that   you   lovingly   shared   with   each   of   our   families.   Every   single   participant   told me   how   magical   their   time   was   with   you   and   how   personal   it   felt.   I   too   felt   that   we   were   uniquely   blessed   to   have   you hold   our   hand   (or   our’s   yours)   through   this   process.   Thank   you   so   much,   I   look   forward   to   seeing   you   and   hopefully Yossi next year in Vancouver. Kol Tuv _________________ Anne Andrew - Temple Sholom Vancouver, BC The   results   of   our   Letter   by   Letter   Torah   project   far   exceeded   my   expectations.   This   was   in   no   small   part   due   to   the tremendous   skill   of   Rabbi   Moshe   Druin   in   connecting   each   family   to   the   letter   that   they   scribed.   The   scribing   experience was   described   as   unexpectedly   spiritually   uplifting   by   many   of   the   members   of   our   congregation.   As   co-chair   of   this project   I   really   appreciated   the   support   of   the   whole   Sofer   On   Site    organization   for   leading   us   step   by   step   through   the process of putting the project together. _________________ Sharon McNamara Temple Sholom Vancouver, BC Our   participation   was   not   only   enjoyable   but   also   memorable   and   extremely   meaningful.   It   was   an   outstanding   project. Thank you and everyone involved. _________________ Gordon Cherry Ceremony - Chair - Temple Sholom Vancouver, BC We were very inspired by Rabbi Druin's "drosh" on our letter and were in tears from the great spirit we felt. _________________ Rochelle Garfinkel - Executive Director - Temple Sholom Vancouver, BC It   was   a   privilege   to   photograph   the   scribing   sessions,   Rabbi   Druin   created   a   warm   and   inviting   experience   with   each and   every   family,   making   them   feel   at   one   with   the Torah   and   with   the   family   members   that   they   were   were   remembering and honouring _________________ Rhea Lazar - Torah Writing Chair - Temple Sholom Vancouver, BC It   was   a   wonderful   experience   for   me   to   be   involved   in   the   planning   of   this   project,   working   and   getting   to   know   many congregants   that   I   had   not   known   before.   I   think   our   process   for   scribers   was   particularly   meaningful   because   of   our very strong pre-scribing activities, where people had a chance to learn a lot about Torah _________________ Jeffrey Balin - Marketing & Publicity - Chair - Temple Sholom Vancouver, BC Our   experience   with   Sofer   On   Site    in   general   and   Rabbi   Druin,   in   particular,   was   truly   outstanding.   Rabbi   Druin   brought a   genuine   and   unique   level   of   insight,   energy   and   honour   to   our   Torah   writing   project,   and   consequently   to   our   Torah itself   and   the   entire   congregation.   His   attention   to   each   person,   each   letter   and   each   detail   ensured   that   this   most sacred   activity   remains   sacred   for   all   participants.   The   support,   structures   and   suggestions   from   Sofer   On   Site s   upfront were critical in launching this year-long journey in the right direction, and it only went up from there! ═══════════════════════════════ R abbi Alan B. Lucas - Senior Rabbi - Temple Beth Sholom, Roslyn Heights, NY Every   Shabbat   and   holiday   when   we   read   from   our   exquisite   new   torah   I   smile   as   I think   of   the   amazing   process   we   went   through   in   its   creation.   So   many   members   of   our shul   family   feel   a   deep   connection   with   this   torah   and   with   torah   learning   thanks   to Rabbi   Druin.   He   lovingly   guided   us   through   this   process.   How   wonderful   is   it   when   our B’nei   Mitzvah   ask,   “Is   this   the   torah   that   I   wrote?”   How   remarkable   is   it   that   young   and old   now   understand   the   meaning   of   torah   and   the   mitzvah   of   writing   a   sefer   torah   in   a way   they   did   not   before. Thank   you   Rabbi   Druin   and   thank   you   Sofer   On   Site    not   only   for   our   wonderful   new   torah,   for   a successful fund raising program but for a Torah learning and a Torah living experience. A   wonderful   by-product   was   the   success   of   our   fundraising   efforts   that   will   greatly   assist   us   with   projects   deemed important    by    our    clergy    and    lay    leadership.    Rabbis    Druin    and    Salazar    made    it    their    responsibility    to    learn    our community's   culture   and   history   which   aided   them   in   bonding   with   our   congregants   -   they   both   played   an   integral   role   in the   process   as   over   2,500   individuals   scribed   over   the   course   of   17   dates   during   the   past   anniversary   year   -   a remarkable number that gained momentum by word-of-mouth from those who enjoyed such a positive experience.
