Many of the torahs are sitting in Shuls, not being used. We find donors like you, to sponsor checking and fixing the Torah.
The checking and restoration process is a delicate task, requiring a competent , trained sofer. The parchment of the Torah isthen scrupulously examined and resown when needed. This often takes weeks and can cost from $4,000-$6,000 per Torah.
When you donate to restore an entire torah, as a sign of gratitude, we dedicate the mantel of the Torah to whomever you wish.
We have deployed Torahs and made loans to: Hawaii
The torah gemachis only three years old, and more than 100s of shuls, and thousands of people have benefited from our work.
...and the list keeps on growing.
As great as this accomplishment is, and as proud we are of where we have come, as the Lubavitcher Rebbe always said, "Mi she'yesh moneh, rotzeh mosaim!" (one who has 100, will want two hundred).we can never be satisfied with our efforts, and strive to improve and grow.
But we need your help!
The Torah Gemach has a long list of shuls and other minyanim that need sefer torahs. We provide the opportunity that the Torah will be read out of, on a regular basis.
To make sure tht there is enough to go around, we only loan primary and seconary Torahs.
We will work with owners, and shuls, to place the Torah in a new home, ensuring the Torah is fulfiling its purpose.
every month, we take census of how many people hear Torah reading from your Torah, so you can know how many people your torah is effecting.
