═══════════════════════════════ Mi chael Teller - Head Chair, Congregation Sha'aray Shalom, MA   On   behalf   of   Congregation   Sha'aray   Shalom,   in   Hingham,   MA,   I   would   like   to   thank   you, your   staff,   and   everyone   at   Sofer   On   Site   for   an   outstanding   job   restoring   our   Holocaust Torah.   Your   help   was   invaluable   in   evaluating   the   existing   Torah   and   determining   its origin   and   age.   We   were   thrilled   to   know   that   this   rare   Torah   is   over   250   years   old, originates   from   the   area   of   Czechoslovakia,   and   was   created   in   a   Kabbalistic   style which no longer exists today. We   know   this   from   the   numerous   times   that   Rabbi   Druin   and   your   entire   staff   visited   our   Synagogue   to   educate   our Congregation   on   not   only   the   history   of   this   Torah,   but   on   the   technical   and   spiritual   requirements   necessary   to   create and   restore   any   Torah.   Our   Congregation   was   excited   to   know   about   the   parchment,   the   ink,   the   quill,   and   most importantly,   the   intent   of   the   scribes,   as   they   carefully   focus   on   each   letter,   the   intent   of   the   Word   and   their   devotion   to the Almighty, all at the same time. An amazing process. Our   new   Torah   is   beautiful   and   each   letter   is   filled   in   so   perfectly   that   it   is   now   kosher,   and   we   have   used   it   during   our services   for   the   past   year.   We   have   been   honored   that   our   most   recent   B'nai   Mitzvah   class   and   all   of   our   Torah   readers throughout   the   year   are   the   first   Jews   to   have   read   from   this   Torah   since   before   World   War   II.   Each   reader   honors   our ancestors   and,   especially,   those   Jews   in   that   small   village   in   Czechoslovakia   who   pooled   their   resources,   their   time,   and their love for their religion to create this beautiful "blueprint for the world". Perhaps   the   most   moving   and   inspiring   part   of   this   process   was   the   Letter   Writing   Program   where   Rabbi   Salazar   visited our   congregation   on   a   regular   basis.   He   would   sit   with   our   congregants   individually,   so   that   they   could   each   write   a   letter in   the Torah,   thus   fulfilling   the   613th   Mitzvah.   I   can   confidently   say   that   this   experience   was   life   changing   for   many   of   us. It   has   inspired   members   to   become   more   involved   in   our   Synagogue,   to   donate   more   money,   and   as   we   recently observed,   to   become   a   B'nai   Mitzvah   at   the   ages   of   50,   60,   or   even   70,   having   never   had   the   experience. After   filling   in a   letter   in   the Torah   with   our   scribe,   others   were   inspired   to   learn   more   about   their   religion,   their   culture,   and   their   Jewish lives. Those   of   us   who   organized   the   restoration   program   and   were   involved   in   the   scheduling   of   the   congregants   to participate   were   just   as   moved   by   seeing   the   other   members'   reactions   and   sharing   their   experiences.   Your   guidance also   led   us   to   a   journaling   and   self-reflection   process,   after   the   letter   writing   experience,   which   yielded   additional inspiration. I   cannot   express   how   deeply   moving   this   entire   experience   was   for   me   personally   and   for   all   of   those   involved.   We   so appreciate your efforts, your expertise, and your leadership. Thank you again for a wonderful experience. _________________ Aaron Nielsenshultz - Director of Youth, Education, and Engagement - Congregation Beth Torah, KS When   the   Congregation   announced   our   Torah   Writing   Project,   I   was   excited   for   the   year-long   experience. As   much   as   I looked   forward   to   the   mitzvah   of   writing   in   the   new   scroll,   I   didn’t   realize   just   how   moving   the   experience   would   be.   Our Sofer   took   time   to   teach   my   family   the   significance   of   our   letter,   and   we   were   all   moved   by   the   experience.   Talk   ab   out   a true   simcha!   As   well,   throughout   the   year,   I   worked   with   other   families   who   went   through   the   experience,   and   they   all echoed the same sentiment, that the experience was both educational and phenomenally moving. ═══════════════════════════════ L inda Eisinger - Executive Director - Congregation Beth Emeth Herndon, VA Thanks   so   much   for   following   up,   and   please   feel   free   to   include   us   with   your   reference materials as being another satisfied   customer! ═══════════════════════════════ H azel Handelman - Temple Sinai Las Vegas NV I   wanted   to   write   and   let   you   know   how   impressed   I   was   by   the   way   you   spoke   to   my granddaughter   Ashley   on   Sunday   Feb   23.   The   message   was   very   inspirational   and   it will be a message I hope she carries with her always. Thank you. _________________ Stefanie Helms - Temple Sinai Las Vegas NV Dear   Rabbi   Druin,   What   a   great   pleasure   to   meet   you   today!   My   daughter   Sailor   and   I   enjoyed   thoroughly   the   scribing experience   and   your   explanation   of   our   letter   "vav". Thank   you   for   coming   to Temple   Sinai   and   for   sharing   your   love   and knowledge of Torah with us. ═══════════════════════════════ R abbi Todd Chizner - Temple Judea of Manhasset I   am   the   senior   rabbi   of   Temple   Judea   of   Manhasset. About   three   years   ago   I   contacted Sofer   On   Site   to   inquire   about   having   a   new Torah   scroll   scribed.   I   had   quite   a   few   goals I   wanted   to   accomplish   with   the   scribing   of   this   new   Torah.   I   wanted   the   new   Torah   to be   in   memory   of   our   rabbi   emeritus,   Rabbi   Abner   Bergman.   Yet,   I   wanted   everyone   in our   temple   community   to   be   involved   and   use   this   opportunity   to   bring   our   community closer   together.   (I   didn't   just   want   to   put   a   new Torah   in   the Ark)   In   other   words,   I   wanted a   Torah   Project:   one   that   every   temple   family   could   and   would   participate   in. And,   as   an added   goal,   I   wanted   this   to   be   a   source   of   significant   fund   raising   for   the   temple. Finally,   I   knew   the   Torah   had   to   be   light   enough   to   be   carried   comfortably   by   all   of   our b'nei mitzvah. I   wasn't   sure   if   it   was   even   possible   to   accomplish   all   of   this.   In   fact,   I   recall   discussing this   with   the   president   of   the   temple   and   we   were   unable   to   come   up   with   a   way   to   do   all   of   this   without   devaluing   one goal   for   the   sake   of   another. The   president   of   the Temple   and   I   called   Sofer   On   Site   and   we   got   on   the   phone   with   Rabbi Moshe   Druin.   Within   minutes   Rabbi   Druin   understood   exactly   what   we   were   looking   for   and   managed   to   come   up   with   a brilliant   plan   of   how   to   accomplish   all   of   our   goals   and   preserve   the   integrity   of   each   one.   Talking   with   him   was   like listening   to   a   creative   idea   machine.   He   rattled   off   idea   after   idea,   which   he   needed   to   do   when   we   said   things   like   "that wont   work   at   our   temple"   or   "that's   not   exactly   what   we   are   looking   for". At   the   end   of   that   first   conversation   the   president and   I   were   convinced   that   Sofer   On   Site   was   the   right   company   to   work   with.   From   that   point   on,   we   had   an   incredibly successful Torah project. We   dedicated   the   Torah   in   October   of   2013   in   an   amazing   wedding   ceremony.   Every   group   in   our   temple   was   present. Every   child   in   our   religious   were   there.   And   Rabbi   Bergman's   family   filled   in   the   last   word   of   the   Torah,   under   the chupah, capping off an incredibly moving and meaningful project! Thank You   again   to   all   of   our   friends   at   Sofer   On   Site. You   truly   enabled   our   community   of   share   in   the   scribing   of   a   very special Torah. ═══════════════════════════════ S teve Hecht - Executive Director, Beth El Congregation of the South Hill, PA   When   we   embarked   on   our   "Inclusion"   Torah   Project,   we   hoped   that   initiative   had   the ability   to   bring   together   our   Beth   El   Community   and   touch   all   the   arms   of   the   Shul.   But, we   were   a   bit   skeptical   that   it   would   be   as   far   reaching   as   it   became.   We   were   amazed at   the   amount   of   families   that   took   part   in   the   scribing   of   a   letter   and   their   individual connections   to   that   letter.   The   monies   pledged   will   enable   us   to   meet   our   capital   needs and we could not have met those obligations without this successful campaign. Sofer   On   Site   led   us   through   the   process   with   their   professionalism,   expertise   and attention to detail. We would highly recommend them. ═══════════════════════════════ M ichael Rubner - Temple Shalom, Naples, FL. I   thoroughly   enjoyed   the   opportunity   to   work   with   Rabbi   Selwyn   during   each   of   his   visits to   our   Temple.   Scribing   two   Torah   letters   with   his   guidance   was   a   once   in   a   lifetime experience   that   I   will   always   cherish.   I   scribed   the   letters   Bet   and   Hey.   Together,   they form the abbreviation for Baruch Hashem, G-d be blessed. I felt blessed as well! ═══════════════════════════════ T eresa   Hellman   -   Ceremony   Chair   -   Congregation   Beth   Torah,   KS Dear Rabbi Druin and Rabbi Goldstein I   didn't   want   the   week   to   pass   without   telling   both   of   you   how   much   I   have   enjoyed working with you on this project for our synagogue. I   have   learned   so   much,   and   it   is   has   been   a   truly   rewarding   experience   to   have   been the   Ceremonies   Chair   on   this   project.   I   feel   that   the   resources   Sofer   On   Site   provided us   allowed   me   to   pull   together   just   the   right   activities   to   create   meaningful   ceremonies from the launch to the closing ceremony. Thank   you   for   your   guidance   and   insight   on   all   of   the   little   details   on   the   program.   In   fact   the   only   thing   I   regret   not including   in   our   service   on   Sunday   was   your   recommendation   of   having   the   youth   group   standing   up   with   signs   saying we   love   you   Rabbi   Levin   after   he   finished   his   remarks!   He   would   have   loved   it   and   I   could   almost   hear   it   when   he finished his remarks. It   was   a   lovely   service   and   we   honored   both   our   Rabbi   and   our   New   Torah   in   just   the   right   ways   with   your   guidance. Thank you for your contributions that day and throughout this past many months. All my best, ═══════════════════════════════ R abbi Yitzchok Schiff - Toras Emes, FL Rabbi   Druin,   Thank   you   SO   much   for   coming   to   show   the   boys   what   a   real   sofer   does. It   was   entertaining,   informative   and   a   lot   of   fun   for   all!   I   have   already   received   a   mound of positive feedback. Safrus   has   been   a   personal   interest   of   mine,   and   the   electives   forced   me   to   do   some decent   research   to   be   able   to   present   something   meaningful   to   the   boys   over   the course   of   the   4   sessions   I   had.   But   as   I   pointed   out   to   them,   safrus   is   one   of   those areas   of   yiddishkeit   that   you   can   spend   your   entire   life   devoted   to   studying   and   still   only begin   to   scratch   the   surface.   And   so,   it   was   so   uplifting   to   see   many   of   the   ideas   I presented   to   them   echoed   in   your   presentation.   But   the   way   you   did   it,   with   all   the   inside   info   and   with   all   the   real   live props....... it was amazing! ═══════════════════════════════ L ouis Naviasky - Torah Project Chair - Temple Beth Sholom , Roslyn, N.Y. What   started   out   as   a   18   month   fundraising   project   ended   up   turning   into   a   dynamic community   building   event   encompassing   learning   and   sharing.   Having   Rabbi   Moshe Druin   was   the   key   to   the   success   of   the   program.   While   we   had   many   challenges, Rabbi   Druin   overcame   them   and   offered   solutions   that   reinvigorated   the   schul.   I   would highly   recommend   that   your   schul   consider   embarking   on   this   meaningful   journey   with Rabbi Druin and his team. ═══════════════════════════════ R abbi   Karen   Allen   -   Congregation   Beth   Sholom   -   Leesburg,   Florida Dear Rabbi Bialo -- Thank   you   so   much   for   your   thoughtfulness   in   sending   us   this   entree   to   the   beautiful and meaningful events in London. Like   so   many   others,   I   have   been   filled   with   awe   and   tears   at   viewing   the   videos   and photos,   and   hearing   the   words   of   the   participants.   I   am   delighted   that   you   were   able   to be   there.   It   is   a   well-deserved   honor,   as   you   and   your   wonderful   staff   at   Sofer   On   Site have done so much to bring Torah to so many, certainly including our congregation. I   am   sharing   your   email   with   Linda   Bork   and   Marsha   Stemerman,   our   Congregation   Beth   Sholom   president   and   past president   who   were   so   instrumental   in   bringing   our   magnificent   Torah   to   us,   through   you.   Every   time   we   open   the   Ark, we   are   overcome   with   emotion,   just   as   we   were   on   that   first   day   we   brought   our   Torah   into   the   sanctuary   with   ceremony and celebration. That feeling never diminishes, nor does our gratitude to you for making it possible. We   want   you   to   know,   very   personally,   how   much   we   appreciate   your   continuing   presence   in   our   lives.   We   think   and speak of you often, always with a smile and a prayer for your continued good health and success. With love and blessings

Safrus   has   been   a   personal interest     of     mine,     and     the electives    forced    me    to    do some   decent   research   to   be able   to   present   something   meaningful   to   the   boys   over   the course   of   the   4   sessions   I   had.   But   as   I   pointed   out   to   them, safrus   is   one   of   those   areas   of   yiddishkeit   that   you   can   spend your   entire   life   devoted   to   studying   and   still   only   begin   to scratch   the   surface. And   so,   it   was   so   uplifting   to   see   many   of the   ideas   I   presented   to   them   echoed   in   your   presentation. But   the   way   you   did   it,   with   all   the   inside   info   and   with   all   the real live props....... it was amazing! ═══════════════════════════════ L ouis    Naviasky    -    Torah    Project    Chair    -    Temple    Beth Sholom , Roslyn, N.Y. What    started    out    as    a    18 month      fundraising      project ended     up     turning     into     a dynamic    community    building event   encompassing   learning and    sharing.    Having    Rabbi Moshe   Druin   was   the   key   to the   success   of   the   program. While   we   had   many   challenges,   Rabbi   Druin   overcame   them and    offered    solutions    that    reinvigorated    the    schul.    I    would highly   recommend   that   your   schul   consider   embarking   on   this meaningful journey with Rabbi Druin and his team. ═══════════════════════════════ R abbi      Karen      Allen      -      Congregation      Beth      Sholom      -   Leesburg,   Florida Dear Rabbi Bialo -- Thank   you   so   much   for   your thoughtfulness   in   sending   us this entree to the beautiful and meaningful events in London. Like   so   many   others,   I   have   been   filled   with   awe   and   tears   at viewing   the   videos   and   photos,   and   hearing   the   words   of   the participants.   I   am   delighted   that   you   were   able   to   be   there.   It is   a   well-deserved   honor,   as   you   and   your   wonderful   staff   at Sofer   On   Site   have   done   so   much   to   bring   Torah   to   so   many, certainly including our congregation. I    am    sharing    your    email    with    Linda    Bork    and    Marsha Stemerman,    our    Congregation    Beth    Sholom    president    and past    president    who    were    so    instrumental    in    bringing    our magnificent   Torah   to   us,   through   you.   Every   time   we   open   the Ark,   we   are   overcome   with   emotion,   just   as   we   were   on   that first    day    we    brought    our    Torah    into    the    sanctuary    with ceremony   and   celebration.   That   feeling   never   diminishes,   nor does our gratitude to you for making it possible. We    want    you    to    know,    very    personally,    how    much    we appreciate   your   continuing   presence   in   our   lives.   We   think and   speak   of   you   often,   always   with   a   smile   and   a   prayer   for your continued good health and success. With love and blessings

═══════════════════════════════ Mi chael     Teller     -     Head     Chair,     Congregation Sha'aray Shalom, MA   On    behalf    of    Congregation    Sha'aray    Shalom,    in Hingham,   MA,   I   would   like   to   thank   you,   your   staff, and   everyone   at   Sofer   On   Site   for   an   outstanding   job restoring     our     Holocaust     Torah.     Your     help     was invaluable    in    evaluating    the    existing    Torah    and determining   its   origin   and   age.   We   were   thrilled   to   know   that   this   rare   Torah   is   over 250   years   old,   originates   from   the   area   of   Czechoslovakia,   and   was   created   in   a Kabbalistic style which no longer exists today. We   know   this   from   the   numerous   times   that   Rabbi   Druin   and   your   entire   staff   visited our   Synagogue   to   educate   our   Congregation   on   not   only   the   history   of   this Torah,   but on   the   technical   and   spiritual   requirements   necessary   to   create   and   restore   any Torah.   Our   Congregation   was   excited   to   know   about   the   parchment,   the   ink,   the   quill, and   most   importantly,   the   intent   of   the   scribes,   as   they   carefully   focus   on   each   letter, the   intent   of   the   Word   and   their   devotion   to   the   Almighty,   all   at   the   same   time.   An amazing process. Our   new Torah   is   beautiful   and   each   letter   is   filled   in   so   perfectly   that   it   is   now   kosher, and   we   have   used   it   during   our   services   for   the   past   year.   We   have   been   honored that   our   most   recent   B'nai   Mitzvah   class   and   all   of   our   Torah   readers   throughout   the year   are   the   first   Jews   to   have   read   from   this   Torah   since   before   World   War   II.   Each reader   honors   our   ancestors   and,   especially,   those   Jews   in   that   small   village   in Czechoslovakia    who    pooled    their    resources,    their    time,    and    their    love    for    their religion to create this beautiful "blueprint for the world". Perhaps   the   most   moving   and   inspiring   part   of   this   process   was   the   Letter   Writing Program   where   Rabbi   Salazar   visited   our   congregation   on   a   regular   basis.   He   would sit   with   our   congregants   individually,   so   that   they   could   each   write   a   letter   in   the Torah,   thus   fulfilling   the   613th   Mitzvah.   I   can   confidently   say   that   this   experience   was life   changing   for   many   of   us.   It   has   inspired   members   to   become   more   involved   in our   Synagogue,   to   donate   more   money,   and   as   we   recently   observed,   to   become   a B'nai   Mitzvah   at   the   ages   of   50,   60,   or   even   70,   having   never   had   the   experience. After   filling   in   a   letter   in   the   Torah   with   our   scribe,   others   were   inspired   to   learn   more about their religion, their culture, and their Jewish lives. Those    of    us    who    organized    the    restoration    program    and    were    involved    in    the scheduling   of   the   congregants   to   participate   were   just   as   moved   by   seeing   the   other members'   reactions   and   sharing   their   experiences.   Your   guidance   also   led   us   to   a journaling    and    self-reflection    process,    after    the    letter    writing    experience,    which yielded additional inspiration. I   cannot   express   how   deeply   moving   this   entire   experience   was   for   me   personally and   for   all   of   those   involved.   We   so   appreciate   your   efforts,   your   expertise,   and   your leadership. Thank you again for a wonderful experience. _________________ Aaron    Nielsenshultz    -    Director    of    Youth,    Education,    and    Engagement    - Congregation Beth Torah, KS When   the   Congregation   announced   our   Torah   Writing   Project,   I   was   excited   for   the year-long   experience.   As   much   as   I   looked   forward   to   the   mitzvah   of   writing   in   the new   scroll,   I   didn’t   realize   just   how   moving   the   experience   would   be.   Our   Sofer   took time   to   teach   my   family   the   significance   of   our   letter,   and   we   were   all   moved   by   the experience.   Talk   ab   out   a   true   simcha!   As   well,   throughout   the   year,   I   worked   with other   families   who   went   through   the   experience,   and   they   all   echoed   the   same sentiment, that the experience was both educational and phenomenally moving. ═══════════════════════════════ L inda       Eisinger       -       Executive       Director       - Congregation Beth Emeth Herndon, VA Thanks   so   much   for   following   up,   and   please   feel free   to   include   us   with   your   reference   materials   as being another satisfied   customer! ═══════════════════════════════ H azel Handelman - Temple Sinai Las Vegas NV I   wanted   to   write   and   let   you   know   how   impressed   I was   by   the   way   you   spoke   to   my   granddaughter Ashley   on   Sunday   Feb   23.   The   message   was   very inspirational   and   it   will   be   a   message   I   hope   she carries with her always. Thank you. _________________ Stefanie Helms - Temple Sinai Las Vegas NV Dear   Rabbi   Druin,   What   a   great   pleasure   to   meet you    today!    My    daughter    Sailor    and    I    enjoyed thoroughly     the     scribing     experience     and     your explanation   of   our   letter   "vav".   Thank   you   for   coming   to   Temple   Sinai   and   for   sharing your love and knowledge of Torah with us. ═══════════════════════════════ R abbi Todd Chizner - Temple Judea of Manhasset I   am   the   senior   rabbi   of Temple   Judea   of   Manhasset. About   three   years   ago   I   contacted   Sofer   On   Site   to inquire   about   having   a   new   Torah   scroll   scribed.   I had   quite   a   few   goals   I   wanted   to   accomplish   with the   scribing   of   this   new   Torah.   I   wanted   the   new Torah   to   be   in   memory   of   our   rabbi   emeritus,   Rabbi Abner    Bergman.    Yet,    I    wanted    everyone    in    our temple    community    to    be    involved    and    use    this opportunity   to   bring   our   community   closer   together. (I   didn't   just   want   to   put   a   new   Torah   in   the   Ark)   In other   words,   I   wanted   a Torah   Project:   one   that   every temple   family   could   and   would   participate   in. And,   as   an   added   goal,   I   wanted   this   to be   a   source   of   significant   fund   raising   for   the   temple.   Finally,   I   knew   the   Torah   had   to be light enough to be carried comfortably by all of our b'nei mitzvah. I    wasn't    sure    if    it    was    even    possible    to    accomplish    all    of    this.    In    fact,    I    recall discussing   this   with   the   president   of   the   temple   and   we   were   unable   to   come   up   with a   way   to   do   all   of   this   without   devaluing   one   goal   for   the   sake   of   another.   The president   of   the   Temple   and   I   called   Sofer   On   Site   and   we   got   on   the   phone   with Rabbi   Moshe   Druin.   Within   minutes   Rabbi   Druin   understood   exactly   what   we   were looking   for   and   managed   to   come   up   with   a   brilliant   plan   of   how   to   accomplish   all   of our   goals   and   preserve   the   integrity   of   each   one.   Talking   with   him   was   like   listening to   a   creative   idea   machine.   He   rattled   off   idea   after   idea,   which   he   needed   to   do when   we   said   things   like   "that   wont   work   at   our   temple"   or   "that's   not   exactly   what   we are    looking    for".   At    the    end    of    that    first    conversation    the    president    and    I    were convinced   that   Sofer   On   Site   was   the   right   company   to   work   with.   From   that   point   on, we had an incredibly successful Torah project. We   dedicated   the   Torah   in   October   of   2013   in   an   amazing   wedding   ceremony.   Every group   in   our   temple   was   present.   Every   child   in   our   religious   were   there.   And   Rabbi Bergman's   family   filled   in   the   last   word   of   the   Torah,   under   the   chupah,   capping   off an incredibly moving and meaningful project! Thank   You    again    to    all    of    our    friends    at    Sofer    On    Site.   You    truly    enabled    our community of share in the scribing of a very special Torah. ═══════════════════════════════ S teve Hecht - Executive Director, Beth El Congregation of the South Hill, PA   When     we     embarked     on     our     "Inclusion"     Torah Project,   we   hoped   that   initiative   had   the   ability   to bring   together   our   Beth   El   Community   and   touch   all the   arms   of   the   Shul.   But,   we   were   a   bit   skeptical that   it   would   be   as   far   reaching   as   it   became.   We were   amazed   at   the   amount   of   families   that   took   part in    the    scribing    of    a    letter    and    their    individual connections   to   that   letter.   The   monies   pledged   will enable   us   to   meet   our   capital   needs   and   we   could not have met those obligations without this successful campaign. Sofer   On   Site   led   us   through   the   process   with   their   professionalism,   expertise   and attention to detail. We would highly recommend them. ═══════════════════════════════ M ichael Rubner - Temple Shalom, Naples, FL. I   thoroughly   enjoyed   the   opportunity   to   work   with   Rabbi   Selwyn   during   each   of   his visits   to   our   Temple.   Scribing   two   Torah   letters   with   his   guidance   was   a   once   in   a lifetime   experience   that   I   will   always   cherish.   I   scribed the    letters    Bet    and    Hey.    Together,    they    form    the abbreviation   for   Baruch   Hashem,   G-d   be   blessed.   I felt blessed as well! ═══════════════════════════════ T eresa   Hellman   -   Ceremony   Chair   -   Congregation   Beth   Torah,   KS Dear Rabbi Druin and Rabbi Goldstein I   didn't   want   the   week   to   pass   without   telling   both   of   you   how   much   I   have   enjoyed working with you on this project for our synagogue. I   have   learned   so   much,   and   it   is   has   been   a   truly rewarding   experience   to   have   been   the   Ceremonies Chair   on   this   project.   I   feel   that   the   resources   Sofer On   Site   provided   us   allowed   me   to   pull   together   just the   right   activities   to   create   meaningful   ceremonies from the launch to the closing ceremony. Thank   you   for   your   guidance   and   insight   on   all   of   the little   details   on   the   program.   In   fact   the   only   thing   I   regret   not   including   in   our   service on   Sunday   was   your   recommendation   of   having   the   youth   group   standing   up   with signs   saying   we   love   you   Rabbi   Levin   after   he   finished   his   remarks!   He   would   have loved it and I could almost hear it when he finished his remarks. It   was   a   lovely   service   and   we   honored   both   our   Rabbi   and   our   New   Torah   in   just   the right    ways    with    your    guidance.    Thank    you    for    your    contributions    that    day    and throughout this past many months. All my best, ═══════════════════════════════ R abbi Yitzchok Schiff - Toras Emes, FL Rabbi   Druin,   Thank   you   SO   much   for   coming   to   show   the   boys   what   a   real   sofer does.   It   was   entertaining,   informative   and   a   lot   of   fun   for   all!   I   have   already   received   a mound of positive feedback.
