═══════════════════════════════ C indy Lyon & Daniel Yohalem - Temple Beth Shalom in Santa Fe, NM Rabbi   Moshe   Druin   made   everyone   feel   welcome   and   connected   to   the   Torah.   He valued   the   importance   of   having   women   participate   fully   in   this   project,   which   was   very important   to   our   congregation.   He   was   thoughtful,   respectful,   open,   interesting,   spiritual, funny,   and   engaging.   We   learned   many   interesting   things   about   the   calligraphy   and style   of   our   Czech   Torah,   and   the   Montefiore   Las   Vegas   scroll,   which   has   even   older, Kabbalistic details. The   structure   of   the   scribing   sessions   was   very   effective.   We   added   our   own   details   such   as   the   rock   painting   project   to commemorate   the   letters   and   the   Talk   Torah   area   where   people   chatted   with   our   Rabbi,   Chazan   and   educators   about their   birth   portions   and   their   connection   to   Torah.   Most   participants   found   the   experience   deeply   moving.   We   could   not have created this learning and spiritual experience without the guidance, leadership and participation of Sofer On Site. Another   example   of   Sofer's   leadership   was   the   Closing   Ceremony.   We   might   not   have   known   the   importance   of   a closing   ceremony   had   Sofer   not   suggested   it.   Having   congregants   watch   as   the   last   letters   were   scribed   and   the   scroll was    stitched    back    onto    the    Aytz    Chayim    was    moving    and    gave    us    all    a    feeling    of    connection    to    the    Torah, accomplishment and closure. Overall,   this   has   been   a   rewarding   and   important   learning   and   community   building   process   for   Temple   Beth   Shalom. Most   importantly,   we   have   a   restored   Holocaust   Torah   and   a   vibrant   part   of   the   congregation   who   participated   in   this process. Thank you for working with us to make it happen. ═══════════════════════════════ R osemary   Lieberman   -   Torah   Project   Management   -   B'nai   Israel   Synagogue   - Pensacola, FL Dear Rabbi Salazar and Rabbi Goldstein, I   just   got   home   a   little   while   ago   from   the   synagogue   and   today's   wonderful   closing ceremony   and   felt   that   I   must   send   out   an   immediate   thank   you.   A   more   formal   thank you will be forthcoming to both of you from the committee. I    cannot    tell    you    how    thrilled    we    were    with    our    wedding    closing    ceremony.    The ceremony    was    incredibly    beautiful    and    Rabbi    Salazar    you    were    amazing;    I    cannot    tell    you    how    many    glowing compliments I received about you. While our congregation is indeed small, we made a huge accomplishment today! In   addition   to   the   closing   ceremony,   I   also   scribed   today   and   the   entire   experience   was   so   uplifting.   I   really   don't   have the   words   to   explain,   but   I   have   never   felt   the   feelings   that   I   felt   today.   I   feel   that   my   soul   is   glowing!   I   must   also   say Rabbi   Salazar,   that   you   are   one   of   the   most   unflappable   persons   I   have   ever   met!   You   are   such   a   credit   to   Sofer   On Site. In   addition,   our   project   would   not   have   been   a   success   without   the   diligence   of   Rabbi   Goldstein   and   his   assistance   and yes,   nudging   when   needed.   In   each   dealing   I   had   with   you   Rabbi   Goldstein,   you   were   professional,   patient,   and creative.   I   felt   very   blessed   to   have   you   on   this   project   along   with   your   creativity.   Our   committee   was   a   small   one   and   we weathered many challenges, but dealing with you wasn't one of them. From   the   bottom   of   my   heart   to   both   of   you   and   to   the   entire   Sofer   On   Site   organization,   thank   you,   thank   you,   thank you! With warmest personal regards, Rosemary _________________ Samuel   W.   Bearman   -   Marketing   &   Publicity   -   Chair   -   B'nai   Israel   Synagogue   -   Pensacola,   FL Dear Shmuel, Sofer   On   Site   was   terrific.   Everybody   with   the   organization   was   very   kind   and   everything   that   we   were   told   would   be done,   in   fact,   was   done. The   New Torah   Project   has   been   wonderful   in   so   many   ways   and   we   are   the   very   proud   owners of a new Torah. ═══════════════════════════════ M argaret Debbané - Temple Sholom Vancouver BC Dear Rabbi Druin: I   was   very   touched   by   participating   in   yesterday’s   scribing   activities.   The   brief   yet powerful   experience   unfolded   so   well   for   participants:   the   activities   in   Sarah’s Tent   were full   of   new   information;   the   hands   on   experience   with   a   Torah   was   a   beautiful   way   to have   practical   content   with   targeted   knowledge   (e.g.   the   first   song   included   in   the   Torah and    being    able    to    experience    it    visually);    the    participation    in    hand    washing    which inculcates   the   experience   with   solemnity;   and,   finally,   the   scribing   and   dialogue   with   you when you so beautifully illuminated your interpretation of the letter I wrote. I   was   Head   of   Public   Programs   at   the   J.   Paul   Getty   Museum   for   many   years   -   and   I   would   say   that   the   “gestalt”   of   my scribing   experience   yesterday   was   PERFECT   as   an   intimate   yet   public   program.   The   short   yet   structured   time   that   is created   for   each   participant   allows   one   to   come   away   with   an   enriched   understanding   of   Torah   -   and   a   new   respect   for it. I am grateful to have had this scribing experience. All the best, ═══════════════════════════════ F rances   B.   Pearlman   -   Director   of   Lifelong   Learning   -   Congregation   Habonim,   NY, NY Recently   Rabbi   Gedaliah   Druin   from   Sofer   On   Site   visited   our   school.   His   first   group   of 4th   &   5th   grade   students   was   fairly   large-   about   thirty   students.   He   was   engaging, entertaining   as   well   as   provided   a   wonderful   educational   program.   He   knew   just   how   to engage   students   both   individually   as   well   as   to   attend   to   the   needs   of   the   group   at large.   Every   student   was   attentive   and   was   in   awe   of   his   talents   and   the   process   he   was   sharing.   He   held   their   attention for a full hour. The   second   group   of   6th   &   7th   grade   students   was   significantly   smaller   and   he   artistically   adjusted   his   presentation   to meet   the   needs   of   this   size   group.   He   was   able   to   address   the   individual   questions   of   the   students   and   to   engage   all   of the   students   for   an   entire   hour.   Another   remarkable   aspect   was   the   personalization   he   incorporated   by   scripting   the children’s Hebrew names. Sofer On Site was a pleasure to deal with and was responsive to emails while we made all the arrangements. Sincerely, ═══════════════════════════════ C huck London - Religious PracticesTemple Beth Shalom, Fort Walton Beach, FL Shalom Rabbi Bialo, I   just   need   to   let   you   know   we   had   a   wonderful   day   with   Rabbi   Salazar.   During   the morning,    we    had    members    and    school    students    writing    the    letters.    He    provided wonderful    explanations    and    was    especially    good    with    the    kids.    His    lecture    was exceptional.   He   was   informative,   entertaining   and   inspiring.   After   the   presentations,   he completed more letter writing with the congregation. As   a   congregation,   we   have   a   greater   understanding   and   appreciation   of   the   meaning of Torah, and our Torah in particular. Thank you for all your help and good work, with a special thanks to Rabbi Salazar. ═══════════════════════════════ J udi   Snyder   -   Beth   El   Congregation   -   Baltimore,   MD Dear   Rabbi   Druin,   I   cannot   even   begin   to   express   how   thrilled   I   was   to   see   you   today and   get   the   once   in   a   lifetime   opportunity   to   scribe   a   letter!   Weeks   ago   Howard's   mother told   me   about   your   repairing   the Torah   at   Baltimore   Hebrew   Congregation   and   asked   if   I thought   this   was   something   that   she   should   do.   I   of   course   told   her   that   meeting   and scribing   a   letter   and   having   the   chance   to   hear   your   precious   words   was   an   experience that   couldn't   be   missed.   And   I   asked   her   if   Howard   and   I   could   share   the   moment   with her. She seemed happy that we wanted to be with her. SO   -   I   thank   you   once   again   for   enlightening   and   inspiring   me   and   for   helping   me   know your   precious   message   to   me.   It   has   lightened   me   and   will   help   to   make   me   a   better and more forgiving person.

Thank you for working with us to make it happen. ═══════════════════════════════ R osemary        Lieberman        -        Torah        Project Management      -      B'nai      Israel      Synagogue      - Pensacola, FL Dear Rabbi Salazar and Rabbi Goldstein, I   just   got   home   a   little   while   ago   from   the   synagogue and   today's   wonderful   closing   ceremony   and   felt   that I    must    send    out    an    immediate    thank    you.    A    more    formal    thank    you    will    be forthcoming to both of you from the committee. I   cannot   tell   you   how   thrilled   we   were   with   our   wedding   closing   ceremony.   The ceremony   was   incredibly   beautiful   and   Rabbi   Salazar   you   were   amazing;   I   cannot   tell you   how   many   glowing   compliments   I   received   about   you.   While   our   congregation   is indeed small, we made a huge accomplishment today! In   addition   to   the   closing   ceremony,   I   also   scribed   today   and   the   entire   experience was   so   uplifting.   I   really   don't   have   the   words   to   explain,   but   I   have   never   felt   the feelings   that   I   felt   today.   I   feel   that   my   soul   is   glowing!   I   must   also   say   Rabbi   Salazar, that   you   are   one   of   the   most   unflappable   persons   I   have   ever   met!   You   are   such   a credit to Sofer On Site. In   addition,   our   project   would   not   have   been   a   success   without   the   diligence   of   Rabbi Goldstein   and   his   assistance   and   yes,   nudging   when   needed.   In   each   dealing   I   had with   you   Rabbi   Goldstein,   you   were   professional,   patient,   and   creative.   I   felt   very blessed   to   have   you   on   this   project   along   with   your   creativity.   Our   committee   was   a small   one   and   we   weathered   many   challenges,   but   dealing   with   you   wasn't   one   of them. From    the    bottom    of    my    heart    to    both    of    you    and    to    the    entire    Sofer    On    Site organization,    thank    you,    thank    you,    thank    you!    With    warmest    personal    regards, Rosemary _________________ Samuel    W.    Bearman    -    Marketing    &    Publicity    -    Chair    -    B'nai    Israel    Synagogue    -   Pensacola,   FL Dear Shmuel, Sofer    On    Site    was    terrific.    Everybody    with    the    organization    was    very    kind    and everything   that   we   were   told   would   be   done,   in   fact,   was   done.   The   New   Torah Project   has   been   wonderful   in   so   many   ways   and   we   are   the   very   proud   owners   of   a new Torah. ═══════════════════════════════ M argaret   Debbané   -   Temple   Sholom   Vancouver BC Dear Rabbi Druin: I   was   very   touched   by   participating   in   yesterday’s scribing   activities.   The   brief   yet   powerful   experience unfolded    so    well    for    participants:    the    activities    in Sarah’s   Tent   were   full   of   new   information;   the   hands on   experience   with   a   Torah   was   a   beautiful   way   to have   practical   content   with   targeted   knowledge   (e.g. the   first   song   included   in   the   Torah   and   being   able   to   experience   it   visually);   the participation   in   hand   washing   which   inculcates   the   experience   with   solemnity;   and, finally,   the   scribing   and   dialogue   with   you   when   you   so   beautifully   illuminated   your interpretation of the letter I wrote. I   was   Head   of   Public   Programs   at   the   J.   Paul   Getty   Museum   for   many   years   -   and   I would   say   that   the   “gestalt”   of   my   scribing   experience   yesterday   was   PERFECT   as an   intimate   yet   public   program.   The   short   yet   structured   time   that   is   created   for   each participant   allows   one   to   come   away   with   an   enriched   understanding   of Torah   -   and   a new respect for it. I am grateful to have had this scribing experience. All the best, ═══════════════════════════════ F rances    B.    Pearlman    -    Director    of    Lifelong Learning - Congregation Habonim, NY, NY Recently   Rabbi   Gedaliah   Druin   from   Sofer   On   Site visited   our   school.   His   first   group   of   4th   &   5th   grade students   was   fairly   large-   about   thirty   students.   He was   engaging,   entertaining   as   well   as   provided   a   wonderful   educational   program.   He knew   just   how   to   engage   students   both   individually   as   well   as   to   attend   to   the   needs of   the   group   at   large.   Every   student   was   attentive   and   was   in   awe   of   his   talents   and the process he was sharing. He held their attention for a full hour. The   second   group   of   6th   &   7th   grade   students   was   significantly   smaller   and   he artistically   adjusted   his   presentation   to   meet   the   needs   of   this   size   group.   He   was able   to   address   the   individual   questions   of   the   students   and   to   engage   all   of   the students   for   an   entire   hour.   Another   remarkable   aspect   was   the   personalization   he incorporated by scripting the children’s Hebrew names. Sofer   On   Site   was   a   pleasure   to   deal   with   and   was   responsive   to   emails   while   we made all the arrangements. Sincerely, ═══════════════════════════════ C huck   London   -   Religious   PracticesTemple   Beth Shalom, Fort Walton Beach, FL Shalom Rabbi Bialo, I   just   need   to   let   you   know   we   had   a   wonderful   day with    Rabbi    Salazar.    During    the    morning,    we    had members   and   school   students   writing   the   letters.   He provided   wonderful   explanations   and   was   especially good   with   the   kids.   His   lecture   was   exceptional.   He was   informative,   entertaining   and   inspiring.   After   the presentations, he completed more letter writing with the congregation. As    a    congregation,    we    have    a    greater    understanding    and    appreciation    of    the meaning of Torah, and our Torah in particular. Thank you for all your help and good work, with a special thanks to Rabbi Salazar. ═══════════════════════════════ J udi   Snyder   -   Beth   El   Congregation   -   Baltimore,   MD Dear   Rabbi   Druin,   I   cannot   even   begin   to   express how   thrilled   I   was   to   see   you   today   and   get   the   once in   a   lifetime   opportunity   to   scribe   a   letter!   Weeks   ago Howard's   mother   told   me   about   your   repairing   the Torah   at   Baltimore   Hebrew   Congregation   and   asked if   I   thought   this   was   something   that   she   should   do.   I of   course   told   her   that   meeting   and   scribing   a   letter and   having   the   chance   to   hear   your   precious   words was   an   experience   that   couldn't   be   missed.   And   I asked   her   if   Howard   and   I   could   share   the   moment   with   her.   She   seemed   happy   that we wanted to be with her. SO   -   I   thank   you   once   again   for   enlightening   and   inspiring   me   and   for   helping   me know   your   precious   message   to   me.   It   has   lightened   me   and   will   help   to   make   me   a better   and   more   forgiving   person.   You   are   a   blessing   to   all   who   have   the   pleasure   to know you! ═══════════════════════════════ R abbi    Mark    Asher    Goodman    -    Rabbi    Mark    Asher   Goodman   -   Denver   Jewish   Day   School Sofer   On   Site   and   Rabbi   Druin   gave   a   tremendous, one-in-a-lifetime   experience   to   all   of   our   students.   It was     the     perfect     example     of     how     experiential education   can   be   the   most   powerful   learning   of   all. Our   kids   not   only   heard   how   a   Torah   was   written, they   held   the   materials,   smelled   the   parchment,   and even    wrote    the    letters    themselves.    Not    just    a mitzvah; a mitzvah that our students will remember for the rest of their lives! Chag Urim Sameach. L'Shalom (In Peace), Rabbi Goodman ═══════════════════════════════ L uis       R.       Dorfman       -       Executive       Director, Congregation Beth Yeshurun, TX We   are   so   pleased   with   the   results   of   our   Renewing the   Promise   Torah   Scribing   Project   that   was   recently completed    .   And    we    have    a    beautiful    new    Sefer Torah as a result. Your   guidance   throughout   the   project   was   superb   and   contributed   greatly   to   our success.   Our   congregants   enjoyed   the   scribing   experience   and   learning   from   your sofrim.   Your   sofrim   who   visited   were   learned   and   extremely   personable.   Everyone who   scribed   had   nothing   but   great   things   to   say   about   them   -   how   they   explained   the significance   of   the   letters   and   the   words,   how   important   they   made   our   congregants feel. Your    entire    team    supported    us    and    helped    us    all    the    way    through    --    from    the preliminary   planning   through   the   execution,   from   the   opening   kickoff   through   the dedication. There's no way we could have done this without you. Todah Rabbah.
