Unbroken Chain

The Torah is the most precious article in Jewish life and is perfectly intact just as we received it some 3,300 years ago.

Despite years of upheaval and suffering, not one of the Torah’s 304,805 letters has ever been changed. The words we read in synagogue today are exactly those recorded by Moses at Mount Sinai.

Owning a Piece

Our Sages have taught that each and every Jew has a letter in the Torah that corresponds to his or her soul and spiritual identity. Just as each letter is essential for a Torah to be Kosher, so too, every Jew is an integral part of the Jewish people.

The very last mitzvah in the Torah is to write a Torah Scroll. By dedicating a word, sentence or portion for yourself, your family or friends, it is as if you have written your own Torah Scroll.

Be a part of this precious Mitzvah, and dedicate a part of our Community Torah!


Please join us in writing history by completing and returning the enclosed form and by participating in the festive celebration. On August 22nd, a scribe, pious and skilled in his field, will handwrite the last letters of the Torah right here in Petaluma.

As we celebrate six years of serving the Petaluma Jewish community, the Chabad Jewish Center’s new scroll will become the latest link in a timeless chain.

The Petaluma Community Torah has been made possible through a generous gift by
