Zerach The Scribe Visits the Preschool
The children who attended school this Wednesday had the opportunity to meet Zerach Greenfield the Scribe, who is involved with writing the Torah for Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel’s new chapel. He explained how a Torah is made from fur to parchment, how quills are made from turkey feather to pens, and how the ink is made. Zerach showed the children the pieces of parchment that has already started working on for our Torah. Each child then told Zerach their names and he wrote the first letter of each of their names in Hebrew. The children also had the opportunity to try to write with quills on their own, they realized how difficult it is to be a scribe. Pictures will be linked in the next newsletter.
